Pukumani Ceremony of the Tiwi People

Our Culture

Added by Oz Outback

Description Clan dances at a Tiwi "Pukumani" funeral ceremony in Pularumpi (Pirlingimpi), an Aboriginal community on Melville Island, Northern Territory, Australia. Each clan has its particular dance associated with their totem. This was recorded with an early model video camera, so the technical quality is poor; the sound was added later from tape recordings!
