    Tradition & Knowledge

    Created by First Nations artist Glen Mackie (Key Kalak), a Iama man from Yam Island, Torres Straits.

    This design is about the lore* of the land. The man with the eagle wings is the holy man. He is the teacher. He holds the lore and teaches the lore. The Rainbow Serpent created the land and animals, this is a common creation story used across the Australian mainland and islands by its indigenous people.
    The man with the ‘Warup’ drum is teaching you about the southern cross constellation. As a Torres Strait Islander, my people call this constellation ‘Tagai’. It is a calendar for us, we still use it today passed down from generation to generation. It was verbally taught to us about the land and sea.
    *The term 'lore' refers to the customs and stories the Aboriginal peoples learned from the Dreamtime. Aboriginal lore was passed on through the generations through songs, stories and dance and it governed all aspects of traditional life
