Writer and poet, Lyndy Delian traces her heritage through her father, mother and grandmother to Black's Town, Dunolly, Western Victoria. She 'sees herself as a product of the cultural genocide that occurred in Australia under colonisation'. Delian's search for family follows the oral tracks left to her in stories from childhood. Her work spans music, singing, songwriting, visual art and writing. Delian's artworks have won major awards and some are held in the collections of the National Museum of Australia, the National Gallery of Australia, the Australian National Botanic Gardens, the Canberra Institute of Technology, Canberra Institute of the Arts, Winnunga Nimmityjah, Aboriginal Health Service, Redfern AHS and in numerous private and public collections. Delian has also illustration in two books : Writing Us Mob, 2000 and Talking Ink from Ochre 2002. Delian was also a founding member of ITAG, the ACT Indigenous Textile And Glass artists group and won the Northern Territory Fashion Awards 2003 in the Category of Textiles, 3m printed fabric.
