Bakir and Bi

Jillian Boyd, Tori-Jay Mordey

Based on a Torres Strait Islander creation story with illustrations by 18-year-old Tori-Jay Mordey.

Bakir (rock) and Mar (storm bird) live on a remote island called Egur with their two young children. While fishing on the beach Bakir comes across a very special pelican (Bakir’s totem is a pelican) named Bi. One day Bakir and Bi disappear and Mar and the children are forced to make the journey to another island by canoe … and so begins the adventure.

There are supernatural themes, totemic connections and kinship relationships - and the island names are imaginary as are the characters. The moral of the story is that everyone has a destiny and a purpose in life.
