“Where’s My Mia Mia”
The leaves in the upside down V shape represent a mia mia.
The yellow spirits outside the mia mia are the homeless people or the disconnected spirits of the homeless, surrounding the mia mia, longing for one to call their own. They are reaching out for help to the services around them and above them, the services are supporting them, but sadly it takes a long time and the spirits are left to float around from place to place.
In the centre it represents home to our people. We have a connection to one place but also to many. We branch out from family or place to place.
The big waterhole. That’s our country. Our home, our connection to our spirit. But we also can go wandering and go be in other areas and still be accepted as our home. We connect to many many people all over.
The three spirits represent the people on their own heart journey, spirits from the past,the present and the future. As they had to travel through the stages of this journey from homelessness to having a happy home of their own..
The yellow and blue dots represent Shelter WA and acknowledges the 40 years they have given.
Below is our peaceful land our Boodja which we all have to live on, our foundation.
Which we all hope everyone has a place to call home on.
The trees on country represents the land and the strong connection within us to country.
Our family roots, the symbol that shows our interconnection to each other.
“The spirits of life flows”
The two spirits are flowing like water like in life, they continue to flow and keep moving forward. They are people whose spirits have been down but they found their strength and now they have strong foundations.
One represents the spirits of the people who need help and the other is the spirits of the people who help others.
Each spirit is strong, maintaining balance through sharing of information, because they never give up, the long term goal can now be achieved.
The spirits both continue to reach out and grow. The waterholes and fires connect them to all the places that they got help from throughout their journeys.
A symbol of starting over, moving forward and looking for growth and change.
Life. They all find their way and are all in balance with each other in the end
