Between the mainland of Yirrkala and Gutjangan Island is a current of water that we call Rawu. My family live on this island and our stories are within this water. The sacred design of the Rirratjingu, my mother’s clan, contains the songs of our ancestors. The round forms are Yathiny. They are small jellyfish-like creatures that float along this current.
