Description “When old man, my father’s brother, did painting he brought all us children and grandchildren to the art centre teaching us to carry on. I used to watch my father painting Pukumani poles and during Kuluma ceremony he was painting his body by holding the mirror. Our fathers told all us girls: “Go down and cut sticks from mangroves to use in the ceremony”. The sticks were put in a circle around the middle circle and the men go out and collect the Kulama (bush yam). We all be there, all my family, when our fathers were doing Kuluma ceremony."
