Wandjina (cloud and rain spirits)
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. Wandjina represents the laws of everything that 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. These customs are carried on today.
