Description - Stars of Tagai by Nonie Sharp

Stars of Tagai is about life among the blue-water people of the Torres Strait Islands - the title is drawn from the myth of Tagai which belongs to all Torres Strait Islanders. The book explores the changing life of these sea people, their creation and re-creation of identity, and their unique sea culture rich in meaning and custom. Covering the period from the mid-nineteenth century until today, this is the first book to examine the social issues involved in the Mabo case, and to give a picture of life of the Meriam people of the Murray Island.
