Wandjinas

The Wandjina spirits are highly respected by the Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbal people who live at Mowanjum and up the Gibb River Road to Kalumbaru in the North West Kimberley region of Western Australia. "The Wandjina is our identity. The Wandjina gave the law, culture and language to the people to abide by. These customs are carried on today. Where you see a lot of Wandjinas they represent the laws of tree, rivers, rocks, bush fruit and animals, all creation. The Wandjinas give the law on how we have to treat and use these creations."
