Abstract

[Extract] It is only seconds after the final quarter siren has sounded and Tuyu supporters are elated with their side's nanow win in the 1996 Tiwi Island Grand Final.' From the centre ofa group ofecstatic supporters, emerges a young woman. She is dressed in Tuyu colours and has the number ofher favourite player painted on her face. The woman throws her arms into the air and stamps the ground. As she does this, the surrounding crowd joins in with song and clapping. She moves through a series ofemphatic dance movements, tossing her head from side to side with her arms slightly outstretched and in a slight curve. She is dancing 'buffalo'. Some eighty years before, Baldwin Spencer described the same dance.
