The Mowanjum people live near the city of Derby. Mowanjum is the collective name for a community whose members speak three different language groups: the Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunambal people. They share their belief in the creator spirit Wandjina, and wear body paint designs made up of dots and lines, which symbolize the stars and sparks that connect the Mowanjum with their ancestors.
