Learn more about Yangamini, the guerrilla collective of trans and non-binary First Nations and accomplices from the Tiwi Islands.

This program brings together Tiwi-Warlpiri Sistagirl Elder and Yangamini founder Crystal Love in conversation with fellow members Jens Cheung and Nadine Lee.

Together they will discuss a range of issues at the core of their collective including First Nations land rights, sexual diversity, and rhetorical sustainability. They will provide insight into their major new commission for the 24th Biennale of Sydney which turns a critical eye on the mining industry and extractivism in settler Northern Territory.

Yangamini (“holes” in Tiwi) is a guerrilla collective initiated by Tiwi-Warlpiri Sistagirl elder Crystal Love Johnson Kerinauia, consisting of trans and non-binary First Nations and accomplices. The collective accommodates First Nations sexual minorities who seek refuge from the rigid gender customs of mainland communities. Yangamini strengthens gender-fluid bush knowledge and challenges missionary sexual oppression, rentier violence, racialised governance, economic control, rhetorical sustainability, and mining extractions in the settler Northern Territory. 

Presented in conjunction with the 24th Biennale of Sydney, ‘Ten Thousand Suns’ at UNSW Galleries, 9 March – 10 June 2024.
