secure and comfortable.

This photograph, taken by Atkinson in the 1890s, shows a group of
rainforest Aborigines with some of these objects. The men on the left are
holding shields, spears and woomeras while the man on the right has a huge
wooden sword as well as a shield. In the front are two finely-woven cane
baskets. Behind are three typical mija .
