"My Mother, she would show me how to weave. She taught me each day when I come home from Maningrida School. I weave mats, dilly bags, string bags and baskets all that time since I went to school, long time ago. I like to sit back, relaxing and weaving. When I have any pressure, I just ignore it and collect pandanus and start stripping it and get it ready for colour and just do weaving. I collect mangrove root for the yellow one and the red one I use the ashes from the mangroves. The brown colour one it's a different plant. Sometimes I mix it up and use leaves for green. I boil it all up and make good colours. I still weaving today long time”
