TO HONOUR THE MEMORY OF PIONEER WOMEN
Two girls of indigenous and non-indigenous heritage are depicted walking together in friendship. The winds of change blow in their hair and skirts as they look towards the potential of the future with confidence. Following the patterns of circles once drawn in the Earth as an aid to conversation and storytelling, they walk barefoot in the footsteps of past generations of pioneer women.
