Summary "Ardiyooloon is home to the Bardi Jaawi people and sits atop the Dampier Peninsula in the remote Kimberley of region of Western Australia. Also known as One Arm Point, the community is surrounded on three sides by the salt water that plays such an integral part in the people's lives. Our World gives a rare glimpse into the lives of the children of a remote Indigenous community. The children carry on the culture of the Bardi Jaawi people as they build fish traps, make spears and boomerangs, hunt crabs, turtles and dugong, learn traditional dances and share traditional stories."-- Publisher
