"The Wellesley Island's connection and respect for sea animals is strong. They feature heavily in our creation stories, are represented in our totemism and kinship systems, give guidance to us, as well as providing nourishment. The Mala Kunbulka (Kaiadilt language) are a significant part of our everyday lives."
