A student of Torres Strait Islander descent was explaining to the assembly that each Torres Strait family is given a totem. A totem is a natural element that they must respect and care for in their culture. Her family, she shared, were given the shark as their totem.
All I could think was that she had better not eat fish fingers (fish sticks) then, as they are reputed to be really shark fish.
I know, evil. I am evil.
