Turtle Hunting in the Straits


The turtles breed in the warm waters of the Torres Strait. This is the time when the hunters hunt the turtles to feed the village. The currents swirl around the islands and also bring fish to hunt. The hunter dives off the canoe to spear the turtle and the spear has a rope tied on to it so that the turtles can’t get away.
