Some of the old ladies involved in Ngarukuruwala, who feature in the music and photos on this website, have recently passed away. As the name, images and recorded voices of people who have died can cause distress to family and friends of indigenous people, we ask you to take care and show respect in the way you use and share the content of this website. You also may find some photos have been temporarily removed following the wishes of family. Thank you
The main township on Bathurst Island has long been known as Nguiu. It has very recently been renamed Wurrumiyanga. In order to respect all members of the community in this transition phase we will use both names on this site.
