Founder, Yarrie Bangura fled her war-torn home in Sierra Leone when she was just eight. Months later, she would arrive in Australia as a refugee. Yarrie's memories of her African heritage inspired her to start making the special ginger brew that she drank in her youth.
The natural remedy, made by her Aunty and Grandmother, was given to the community to ward off colds and encourage digestive health. To Yarrie, Aunty's Ginger Tonic isn't a business. It's a symbol of her past, her future and the power of community. Through her business, Yarrie strives to ‘give back’ to her fellow Australians, and to inspire others in the refugee community to follow their dreams.
My name is Saretta Fielding and I am a Wonaruah woman. I have enjoyed the benefit of growing up within a large and close knit extended family and much of my work is influenced by family connection and relationships.
My artworks are reflective in style to many traditional sand engravings found throughout Wonnarua country and the Hunter Region and are connected to country in style and design through the use of a sand based medium and engraving technique. The highly textured pieces embody the age-old sandstone engraved artworks created by our ancestors and add a unique dimension to the works.
am Ngyiampaa woman born on Gadigal land (Sydney) and grew up on Wiradjuri (Griffith) and Yugambeh (Gold Coast) country before moving down to Ngunnawal country (ACT region) in 2012. Marrawuy Journeys is a Supply Nation registered, 100% Aboriginal owned business where I incorporate my own journey and experiences into pieces of artworks. I have also extended this to incorporating the journeys of others, be that of individuals or organisations, and turning them into personal pieces of artwork.
Marrawuy (Mar-ra-way) in my ancestors’ language of the Wongaibon people means Red Kangaroo. From my research, I have been able to find a family tree that shows that the totem of one of my ancestors, Richard King, was a Red Kangaroo. This is one of the reasons I have chosen to go by Marrawuy Journeys but the other is the fact that a Kangaroo can’t easily jump backwards. This also resonates strongly with me because no matter what challenge I am thrown, I keep moving forward.
My name is Jennifer Stefanac and I was born into a connected, colourful and resilient family in Wellington, Wiradjuri Country in New South Wales, Australia. I was adopted into a non-Aboriginal family and then reunited with my relatives in the 90’s.
I have developed many relationships across political, public/private sectors and have made community connections that will add a unique pool of knowledge and experience to build the Blackseed brand. With a passion for food and learning about my culture, I have utilised my experience and training to take others on a journey that is ancient, healthy and delicious.
