Alternative Names

Galuma Maymuru

Galuma Maymuru was one of the first women to paint the maḏayin miny’tji (sacred clan designs). She was taught by her father Narritjin Maymuru. Galuma worked as a teacher at Bäniyala School and was influential in the Buwayak movement, in which the figurative elements of paintings were buried beneath more abstract designs. In 2003, she received the bark painting prize at the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards.
