Summary
Tjakin-Njikena or meat avoidance was traditionally limited to the flesh of marsupials by people in the Broome, Luma & La Grange areas and was practiced during times of mourning as a voluntary sign of being sorry for the deceased; Today the practice has changed so that the choice of what food is to be avoided and for how long is a matter of individual choice; Subjects from Walmatjeri, Mangala, Njikene, Karadjeri and Njangamata tribes
