Mrs. C Djiagween

Nagula Jarndu Women's Resource Centre

The late Mrs C. Djiagween was an esteemed Jabirr Jabirr and
Yawuru Elder from The Dampier Peninsula and Broome region.
Born in Beagle Bay in 1936, she lived in Broome for many years.
Mrs. C had a wealth of cultural knowledge that she shared with
her fellow artists and colleagues in her gentle way. She was a
founding member of Nagula Jarndu and attended art classes and
workshops to develop her skills as an artist. She was influenced by
the abundance of Broome’s native flora. With her family’s permission,
we are happy to continue to celebrate her life through her art.
