AUNTY ZETA MOOKIE RANGE

LONG-SLEEVE T-SHIRT — $45

KIDS' T-SHIRT — $25

TOTE BAG — $29

Buy now

Share the knowledge and pay respect to First Peoples' ancestral spirits with this glow-in-the-dark long-sleeve tee—created in respectful collaboration with Aunty Zeta Thomson (Wurundjeri/Yorta Yorta). It's locally made, using organic cotton with a design based on Thomson’s iconic 2021 Melbourne Art Tram work, Mookies Around the Watering Hole. It comes in children's sizes for the little ones. And you can carry the design with you as a glow-in-the-dark, organic cotton tote.

“‘Mookie’ means spirit in Yorta Yorta. In our culture, visitors would call out to the Mookies of the Ancestors as they walked through the bush announcing that they were coming on to Country. They would meet and gather at sacred waterholes for cultural business. After the ceremony the travellers would begin their journey across Country to the next place, ‘galyan woka ngana buraya moya’—‘a beautiful place far, far away’. This work teaches us to respect Country and honour our Ancestors.”

— Aunty Zeta Thomson

A portion of the profits will be donated to Aunty Zeta Thomson’s nominated charity, Wildlife Victoria.


REKO RENNIE OA_RR UMBRELLA — $39

Buy now

Reject the rain’s unwanted attention with this limited-edition umbrella, designed by Kamilaroi/Gamilaroi artist Reko Rennie.

Its design features a bold blue and pink 'OA' motif, that ties into Rennie’s rooftop mural that graced the top level of our 2021 art car park Golden Square, and his video work Initiation OA_RR, which premiered at RISING.

“‘OA’ stands for ‘Original Aboriginal’. I have used this term in my art in various ways: in lettering, neon and hand-drawn tags. OA comes from ‘OG—Original Gangster—a term used to represent someone who had achieved respect from doing what they did on the street or the neighbourhood for a long time. OG is also used in reference to mean something old-school and during the ‘80s and ‘90s it was referenced in hip hop, west-coast culture, graffiti and gang culture.”

— Reko Rennie

A portion of profits from each sale will go to Rennie’s nominated charity, Elizabeth Morgan House.
