Big thank you to :iconmisschocoholic: for the historical info about Yolngu-Makassar she provided ^^

=> Indonesia is holding Australia's message stick.

=> Message Stick

Throughout Australia, Aboriginals had over 200 different languages and 600 dialects, yet no written language. Communication of information to all these different groups was often through a message stick. Each stick was carved in a way that would help the carrier remember the message and prove to the recipient that the information was genuine. Message sticks meant that a complex or very long message could be communicated between people. This was supported by people who acted as 'diplomats' and others who were multilingual and used as translators. Source :[link]

=> Manikay (Song Cycle)

Manikay in eastern Arnhem Land languages, means ‘song cycle’ and refers to the ceremonial songs and dances through which Yolngu people celebrate their creation stories.

Contemporary artist John Bulun Bulun is a respected traditional doctor, songman and senior ceremonial manager. His paintings describe the annual visits over more than three hundred years (until 1906) of Macassan traders to Arnhem Land shores to collect and process trepang (beche de mer) which they traded with the Chinese. The large canvas includes the most important abstract and figurative elements of the Ganalbingu language group creation myth and also contains references to the social and cultural influences absorbed through interaction with Macassan people. Abstract designs on individual barks comment on the path of the Macassar perahus journeying to and from ‘Marege’, the name they gave to the land lying to the south of their country. The North West wind that carried them is represented by a triangular pattern which is also painted on the bodies of dancers performing in the Murrukundjeh ceremony. Songs and accompanying dances describe some of the goods which were introduced such as tools, dugout canoes and their sails, knives cloth and tobacco.

(1) In 1993 Bulun Bulun led a group including dancers, songman and didgeridoo player to perform Marayarr Murrukunddjeh over three nights at the Galigo Museum in Makassar (Ujung Pandang), Sulawesi. The visit, to re-establish relations with descendants of the Makassans, was a moving time for the Ganalbingu. Bulun Bulun had long dreamed of this land so intimately connected with his people’s past.

Elaborate preparations for the ceremony included body painting and decorations and making the Marayarr pole to represent the mast and rigging of a Makassar ship. By painting the pole and making the feathered ropes and singing, this pole, handed down through the decades from father to son, had enabled elders to pass on the lore. On the last night of the ceremony, the dancers slowly appeared out of the shadows to reveal their final gift. People mourned the loss of the pole as it was presented, a traditional ritual which reflected the Ganalbingu’s sadness at parting with their Makassan friends and family.

Isinya ga ada tulisan apa2, cuma symbol yg fungsinya untuk mengingatkan sesuatu. Dalam page ini fungsinya untuk mengingatkan klw Yolngu-Makassar adalah BFF.
