Wandjina

The Wandjina spirits are highly respected by the Worrora, Ngarinyin and Wunumbul people who live at Mowanjum and along the Gibb River Road to Kalumburu in the North West Kimberley region of Western Australia. We believe that the Wandjinas brought the law, culture and language to the people. 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. Wandjina represents the laws of everything the surrounds us trees, rivers, rocks, bush fruit and animals, all creation. The Wandjinas give the law on how we have to treat and use these creations.
