Home / Premium Bandanna – Mirri Yaana
Artwork by Aboriginal artist Annie-renae Winters and reproduced digitally by Josh Bell, Canteen Youth Ambassador.
Annie-renae Winters is a Kamilaroi woman who grew up on Wiradjuri/Gadigal land. She combines traditional Aboriginal artforms with a contemporary twist. Josh Bell is a Canteen youth ambassador who has incredible creative, digital and graphic design skills.
Together, Annie-renae and Josh have created the Mirri Yaana premium bandanna ($15). Mirri Yaana means ‘shooting star’ in Kamilaroi.
“Mirri Yaana is also a reflection of my culture and where I come from. It is an act of remembrance and acknowledgment of the long rich history I come from. Mirri Yaana meaning shooting star in my fathers language Kamilaroi was one of the first words I ever learnt and I remember how excited I felt. I love the stars and the excitement of a shooting star. Hearing my traditional name for it makes me feel connected every time I see the stars at night. I love using bright colours to represent this and the excitement I feel. This has elements of the traditional aboriginal symbol for stars but also with my own twist as an artist, making it my own.”
