When I have done Aboriginal dancing the women/girls wore a range of dresses and skirts and the men/boys wore the traditional lap lap.
The paint represents ochre and being connected to our sacred land and Mother Earth.
.
Ochre is type of rock clay used by Indigenous people for thousands of years. Ochre is a rock grounded down to a paste, used for art in caves, on artefacts, weapons, painted on men and women for ceremony and for other purposes and is still used and sacred to Aboriginal people today.

Warlukurlangu Artists-

This 'Jukurrpa' (Dreaming) comes from Mina Mina, an important women's Dreaming site - far to the west of Yuendumu. In the Dreamtime, ancestral women danced at Mina Mina and 'karlangu' (digging sticks) rose from the ground. The women collected these travelled east dancing, digging for bush tucker, collecting 'ngalyipi' (snake vine) and creating many places as they went along their travels. As the women travelled they collected 'jintiparnta' (desert truffle) moving far beyond Warlpiri country and as far as Queensland. In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements.
