Signed certificate of authenticity.

"Makarrki is a major estuary in northern Bentinck Island. At Makarrki, the largest source of mean in the Kaiadilt world- dugong, would be regularly enter the estuary during high tide. Sneaking in behind them, the Kaiadilt men would erect long nets across the narrow mouth of the eastern lagoon, and wait for the tide to retreat.. The returning dugong fell prey to the nets, entangling themselves, whereupon the men with their bare hands would 'wrestle' them, climbing on their necks and drowning them in the shallows. In effect then, Makarrki was a traditional slaughterhouse where livestock herded itself, by virtue of the Kaiadilt's wily exploitation of natural tidal flows."
