Illustrated Artwork by Josh “Koomal” Whiteland, Wadandi Cultural Custodian

“Koomal” is the traditional name of Wadandi man Josh Whiteland. Koomal is the Wadandi word for brushtail possum and the totem chosen for him by his Elders. Josh was born in Busselton, WA and grew up surrounded by family, culture and connection to country.

Passionate and spiritually aware, Josh has a personal commitment to continuing cultural practices and delivering cultural awareness both within the local community, and to visitors to the region. It is for this reason he created ‘Koomal Dreaming’ so that he could communicate part of his connection with his land and his people with guests from around Australia and the world. With his own personal style an interpretation, Josh uses art as an outlet to express his passion for native foods and his love for culture and country.
