Today, Stacey explores the world of Indigenous art, where painting and storytelling go handinhand. She's talking to Indigenous Interpretation Officer Jarred Fogarty, who shows us amazing totems from Ramingining. Stacey gets her face painted in the dolphin motif, while the different dabs of colour and their meanings are explained.
