Ŋukaliya

As told by the artist:

‘This print is about ŋukaliya (hermit crab). We collect them from the beach and we cook them on the fire. It’s manymak (good) for people with heart and kidney problems. When I was a little girl we went hunting, we would collect ŋukaliya and my grandmother would tell me the story and knowledge about ŋukaliya while we hunted.

When we cook them, inside the shell turns orange when it’s cooked, then it’s ready to eat.’
