  2. Hello Biance. I have thought about your question a good deal. I would do three things. I would a) approach my local aboriginal community and ask for advice and b) speak with my tattooist. They generally are pretty clever with tats that suit. and c) I would ask my friend. Perhaps she will have an idea of something she would appreciate. A friendship as special as this is a good one in which to share decisions.Yrs L.

  9. Can you tell me the aboriginal meaning for the word MOY – my grandfather built a house on Bribie Island pre-war and named it MOY and I’m sure it would have had some significance long lost in our famiily .

  10. I was wondering, what does the word Jiluka mean? I have looked everywhere to know what it means and have no luck at all.
