“When I was a baby my Mekeo grandmother, or bubu, from Papua New Guinea, would rock me in her arms and tell me stories. My Mekeo grandfather, bubu, was a crocodile hunter.
But I didn’t grow up with crocodiles because when I was only one, we went to live in Australia with my Aussie dad on a cold but beautiful island called Tasmania: home of wild rivers, Tasmanian devils and the now extinct thylacine.
In my twenties I left Tasmania with my husband and by the time we had small children we were living near the rain forest and the sugar cane fields.
We were well and truly in the lands of the crocodile and cassowary, similar to that of my ancestor’s Mekeo homeland.”
Coming soon the Kickstarter Trailer.
