Walmajarri people believe that our human incarnation retains a deep and spiritual connection to the earth, because it was from the earth that our soul emerged. Human handprints are unique and have been recorded in Aboriginal rock art and designs for thousands of years. It is important to retain our connection to the earth and to feel its spirit to allow it to guide us on our human journey.
