  1. Interesting read, thanks John. I find it remarkable that the so-called Hunter Valley cloak is not very old — only ‘collected’ in the time of my great-great grandmother. But then occupation of Aboriginal lands is not so old, either, is it?
    I’m glad that the cloak is still there for us to see (and will make a point of visiting it whenever I visit Washington DC). Also grateful that the craft and value of these magnificent pieces is being continued/restored by contemporary Koori artists and craftspeople.

If aneeone can tell me what this type of headdress means I would be greatfull. Thanks
