Totems are used to define our ancestry, land ownership and our stories. Every totem has a traditional dance and song. Totems identify different clans within a language group. "English names were given to our people three generations back. White settlers, stockmen and police with the help of black trackers gave us those names. Before that time we had bush names that connected us to our clans and country using totems". Syd Bruce Shortjoe
