Wandjinas

"The Wandjina is our identity. We come from the north-west Kimberley region of Western Australia. This is where our Wandjina belong and come from. The Wandjina gave the law, culture and language to the people to abide by. The 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 Wandjina spirits are highly respected by the people of Mowanjum and up the Gibb River Road.
