Two Dugal Sisters: The design depicts the dreamtime story of Darraba people, Starcke, Cape York Peninsula.  Clan groups would come to Starcke for ceremony.  It was the perfect spot because there was plenty of water. The story is about two turtles who are found out to be steeling water and being greedy and not sharing it with the other clan groups.  Two animals being the snake and kangaroo rat, have the skills to help solve the problem of the water disappearing. There’s a teaching in this story. Don’t judge people by their appearance alone as you will not see the skills and abilities they possess and can contribute to community. ©Susan Reys 2019
