This story belongs to all Kugu people. Mundha is our word for Shovel Nose Ray. It is a special fish that lives in our coastal waters, and can grow to be very large. It is very good to eat.

Mundha is one of the main foods eaten by grieving people. A widow, widower, grieving aunt or uncle, are allowed to eat Mundha, Sawfish, Catfish, shellfish and other small fish. They cannot eat emu, wallaby, flying birds, or eggs of any kind.

Kugu and Wik people have ceremonies and dances for Mundha. These ancient dances imitate the movements of the fish.

Pormpuraaw Art & Culture Centre Incorporated

Pormpuraaw Art & Culture Centre Incorporated was formed in 2009. Pormpuraaw is a beautiful place located in Cape York Peninsula on the gulf of Carpentaria. We are rich in language speakers, culture and talented artists. We are most known for our print making, painting and sculptures made from recycled ghost nets. Ghost Net is the term we use for illegally abandoned fishing nets by commercial fishing boats. These nets drift on ocean currents and continue to kill marine life for no reason. We also publish important cultural manuscripts and film making in language. We have exhibited nationally and internationally. Our work has been collected by many important collections and institutions. http://Pormpuraaw Art & Culture (fcp1)-H.264
