Bunggul: The traditional ceremony practised for thousands of years


When I was little, about 10 years old, I was starting to learn dancing with just looking at the other older people and seeing the way they react and that’s when I started picking up their actions. In the afternoons we do Bungguls, like dancing and everyone will get involved in that like dancers, ladies, kids and men. The dance and the song is from this area. So, every other clan that performs here has their different way of dancing and singing. The dance is very, very important to kids when they are learning, and it is your background that you are starting to learn, every child has to learn from the beginning. I think that they’ll [Garma attendees] learn something that they’ve never seen before and they’ll take back what they take from their camera or whatever, you know? and that’s what they’ll remember.
