They guide your spirit as it escapes from the world of mortality, and welcome you very warmly to your death.
When you die it’s sometimes hard to know what to do. So the Kultana light a fire to guide your spirit to the Land of the Dead. Which happens to be Badu, a small island nestling somewhere in the Torres Straits. With its coconut trees and beaches this is a very pleasant place to spend your afterlife.
The Kultana also look after North Wind and Rain, both very popular items in Arnhem Land. Effigies of them represent falling rain. Please don’t tell us it rains in the afterlife.
