All the moons are here, past and present, like our ancestors.

They exist. I can talk to them like they are here now.

Japara know also as the moon man, went to live on the moon when Tiwi people were immortalised after dreamtime.

I can see Japara in the sky and in the sea too when there is a reflection.
