This symbol represents the Coming of the Light, an incredibly important event in which Christianity influenced Torres Strait Islander culture and ended head hunting and witchcraft, a common practice among Torres Strait Islanders. Today, Christianity plays a significant role in the life of many Torres Strait Islanders and is a big part of their culture.
