Aboriginal Ceremonial Costumes

HeadDuring ceremonies specific types of dress or ceremonial costumes were worn.

This traditional dress helped the participants to connect their physical body to the spiritual world by wearing significant sacred objects, presenting themselves as a totem figure or enabling their bodies to carry significant markings.

Wrist and ankle bands made of woven string and animal skins are worn, with women often wearing skirts made from emu or other bird feathers.

Each different language group had their own types of ceremonial dress.
