About the design: Kulama

The Kulama ceremony was given to the Tiwi people by the Nyingawi who are little spirit people (in Tiwi mythology). It is a celebration of life and food, occurring at the end of the wet season. The Tiwi know when to perform Kulama when the last full mooon of the wet season has a yellow halo surrounding it, which tells them that Japarra (the moon man) is ready for it to begin.
