About the Milingimbi Art & Culture Centre design: 
Nyoka’ (male mud crab) by Jacob Ganambarr.

Jacob Ganambarr is 14 years old, the son of Wilson Manydjarri and a renowned Yidaki (didgeridoo) player. Jacob lives on Yurruwi, where the community of Milingimbi is located. The Yolnu of the Crocodile Islands have had sea-focused livelihoods for millennia. Using djimbililka (bark canoes) and lipalipa (dugout canoes) they travelled with the winds from island to island, catch with spears and fish traps the seafood that each season brought. In the 1960s the principal of the Milingimbi school helped to set up fishing and crabbing enterprises. Some of the women would go out with the men on the boats to the other islands, where they would catch nyoka (male mud crabs) to sell to the co-op. The women never took nyena
(female mud crabs) so the population could recover. In Yolngu culture, the land, sea, ceremony, songs and art are connected. Milingimbi artists share these connections and stories in unique fibre works, barks, ceremonial poles and carvings.

Works from Milingimbi are recognised for their quality and cultural significance and are collected in many national and international institutions. The centre is an Indigenous owned corporation, which supports Yolngu culture and sustainable livelihoods for artists.
