TRADITION & KNOWLEDGE (LORE)

Artist: Glen Mackie (Key Kalak)
Tribe: Iama (Yam)
Language: Kala Lagaw (Central Torres Strait)
Hand-drawn illustration on paper, 2020

This artwork depicts stories that go back for many years and teach us about the ancient connection of our people to the land. These tools and traditions were passed down from generation to generation, through spoken words.
 
The man with the eagle wings is the teacher. He holds the Lore and passes it on, telling the story of the Rainbow Serpent that created the animals, the land and the sea. The man with the “Warup” drum is teaching us of the Southern Cross constellation.  As a Torres Strait Islander, my people call this constellation “Tagai”. It is a calendar for us, and we still use it today.
