Tagai Stamp

 

The star constellation represents Tagai in the Milky Way. Tagai stands on a canoe and holds a spear (Southern Cross) in his left hand and a fruit in his right hand. Torres Strait Islanders still look to Tagai for navigation, as his left hand points to the south. The stars tell Islanders when to hunt dugong and turtle, when to plant their gardens, when the monsoon season arrives and when the winds change.
