Ernabella Arts Inc. collection no. 6




The Ernabella Arts Inc collection no. 6 consists of two girls' dance outfits. Each outfit includes a black Bonds top and skirt, a woollen arm and headband, a woollen overskirt made from strands of commercial wool worn over the black skirt and a painted digging stick.

These Ernabella collections represent the ongoing dynamism of cultural practices at Ernabella, the manner in which the communities at Ernabella have responded to change in the region, and the desire within the community to maintain cultural practices through the transfer of knowledge to the younger generation.
