Mona Mitkakiki Rug

Product Information

Size: 180cm x 120cm

Mona’s story is a creation story of a husband and his wife, Ikaka.
Mona said she can’t tell full story, as it is Watiku (men’s) story, she can only tell the Minymaku (women’s story) part.
Mona said this story is from Lapaku, a homeland near Warakurna (Giles Station) in Western Australia.
This is her father’s and grandfather’s homeland. It is a secret story that men sing at inma or ceremony.
“The men elders had inma (ceremony). Ikaka stole something which was men’s business only. The elders chased Ikaka and her husband when they tried to run away. The elders found them and punished the husband with death. Ikaka ran, leaving behind their baby, away from her grandfather’s country. She went to Kunamata, and passed away there. Ikaka died of grief for her husband – she never came back, she sing for that man”. To pass this story on through the generations, Mona might draw it in the sand while telling or singing the story. The creation or dreamtime stories such as the story of Ikaka are strongly linked to Aboriginal law.
