Maryanne Mungatopi's Tiwi Portraits

I can dance – all us Tiwi dance, my dance is crocodile, yirrikapayi. But I can’t sing, the old people know the songs but it’s too hard for us younger people. I heard my uncles and fathers singing, and my mother would tell me it was about country, and dance. Maybe when I’m old I’ll learn the songs.[1]
