Twin Otter Junba

Our Culture

Added by Mowanjum Aboriginal Art and Culture Centre

Description This dance was performed at the 2013 Mowanjum Festival. It had not been danced in over a decade and was rediscovered after community elders accessed repatriated image.

The Mowanjum Aboriginal Art and Cultural Centre is a creative hub for the Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbal tribes, who make up the Mowanjum community outside Derby, Western Australia.

These three language groups are united by their belief in the Wandjina as a sacred spiritual force and the creators of the land. They are the custodians of Wandjina law and iconography.

The centre hosts exhibitions, workshops and community projects, as well as the annual Mowanjum Festival, one of Australia's longest running indigenous cultural festivals.
