    Walkarr Ngujakuramun

    This painting depicts the Walkarr Ngujakuramun (goanna creation story).  There is a dance and song for this story that is still used in ceremony. Kuku Yalanji have totems which we pass down the generations.

    We call ourselves bama (people).  Our Country was invaded by pioneer settlers and missionaries and there have been horrible times for my people.  Us bama have fought to keep our culture and language strong. We are still dancing and singing our song lines.
