Edited film by the Australian Film Board depicts life among the Yirrkalla Aborigines of coastal Arnhem Land on the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia. Film reveals acculturative influences from Malay traders and missionaries and a nearby airforce base. Malay influences documented include bark canoes, metal tools, and tobacco smoking. Aborigines are seen hunting, fishing, gathering, cooking, and building huts. Children are shown sketching in the sand and dancing. Film is believed to be a record of the American Australian Scientific Expedition to Arnhem Land.
