Maaman (men) gathering to Waangki-ny (talk) and do cultural activities.

Clapping sticks are the traditional instruments of all Aboriginal people, providing rhythmic accompaniment for song and dance.

These tapping sticks were made from the Mangart Boorna (jam tree), significant to the Yuat area. It is an incredibly hard timber that produces an extremely sharp, high quality sound.
