About the Tribe


Importance of Animal Products

Meat Hunting: The Murngin (Yolngu) people of Arnhem Land in Northern Australia practiced specialized hunting techniques for various animals, including kangaroos, wallabies, and birds. Their hunting methods were deeply embedded in their cultural traditions and rituals 

Importance of Plants

Plant Gathering: Plant gathering, especially of wild yams, fruits, and nuts, was a significant activity for the Murngin. These practices reflect their intricate understanding of the environment and seasonal variations in the availability of different plants
