Wandjina & Jaiya (Fish)

The Wandjina is the creator spirit that belongs to us (the Wororra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbul people). He is the one that created everything, he also gave us our culture, law and songs and even the dreaming of each child before they are born. Wandjina is the creator for all the food on the land and in the sea. He’s the one who gave us Jaiya (fish).
