Gurumba Bigi-Hello

My name is Avalon Karatau (Jinani)

I am a member of the Badtjala people, also known as Ocean Fork. I am Yirrayirra Dhal Guradyi, a Bush Tukka medicine woman from Kg'ari, also known as Fraser Island, located in Murri country, Queensland. My skins are Yul'Lu, Gugug, and Winha nga nha. My territory extends from Tinian Creek, Fraser Island, Double Island Point, Tin Can Bay, Bauple Mountain, and north to a point at Burrum Heads in Queensland. I am a direct descendant of Jack Noble Wannamutta, a Queensland Black Tracker who worked with Victorian Police in helping capture the Ned Kelly gang between 1879 to July 1880 at the age of 25 years.
