Ngaji gurrjin! Wirriya ngangaran liyan nyamba buru Yawuru (Hello. We hope you are feeling good in our Yawuru country). The Yawuru people are the traditional owners of the lands and waters in and around Rubibi (the town of Broome) and we have always shared our stories and culture with visitors to this country.
