Clan: Gupapuyŋu

Homeland: Lugutja

Moiety: Yirritja

Totems: Galuku

Waŋarr means totem and it represents your clan and your homeland and also you are related to it. My design is a flower one which is called Wurrki. This design is important to me because it represents every season. This flower lives in the billabong and Yolŋu people eat this flower but only the root of Wurrki.
