Aboriginal Ceremonies from Northern Australia

Dancing in the sea

During the final rituals on the main day of the important ''Ngarrag'' or ''Mardayin'' ceremony in Numbulwar the two moiety groups dance in the sea; they immerse themselves and wash off their body paint, before returning to the ceremonial ground where the men continue dancing.
