Tiwi People

. . . to the Tiwi Islands.

Tiwi Art Workshop

Making Funeral Poles.

With the popularity of Aboriginal art
these are now highly sought after.

But still . . . they are Funeral Poles.

The elusive Tiwi Tiger

Pure evil … some say.

Yet … not elusive enough.

But just in case?

Ernie Dingo and me … Not Tiwi people.

      1. The Tiwi’s are but a small drop
        off the huge mainland continent
        of Australia. Apparently there was
        trade between the vastly dispersed
        indigenous tribes. And they do all
        have common ancestry as well as
        cultural roots. I’ve taken pictures of
        some ancient rock art from Uluru
        and Kakadu. I’ll post them soon
        … just for you Graham 😎

    1. Some people, it seems, have every
      right to complain, yet smile anyway.
      It’s good to get out of the city every
      now and then, where things are often
      quite the opposite ☹️
      Glad you enjoyed the post, JT 😎
