Our Culture

Added by Oz Outback

Description Torres Strait islander students, boys and girls from Djarragun College, an indigenous school near Cairns, Far North Queensland, during the Townsville Cultural Fest. This is a mixed group of boys and girls from different islands. The dance is from Boigu Island, in the far north of the Torres Strait. The song is by Afa Anau and the dance is choreographed by Thomas Matthew. It is about going out by boat to an island called Warrulkawa (Turtle Island), sailing along the Papua New Guinea coast to Dauan Island.
