About Wandjina
Colour Woodblock print
The Wandjina spirits are highly respected by the Worrora, Ngarinyin and Wunumbul people who live at Mowanjum and along the Gibb Rover Road to Kalumburru in the North West Kimberley region of Western Australia. We believe that the Wandjinas brought law, culture and language to the people. The Wandjina is our identity. The Wandjina gave the law, culture and language to the people to abide by. These customs are carried on today. Wandjona represents the laws of everything that surrounds us; trees, rivers, rocks, bush fruit and animals, all creations. The Wandjinas give the law on how we have to treat and use those creations.
