Saibai Island, TSIRC Waste Management Pottery Reply To: Pottery

    The idea was a pottery workshop. I looked around and found evidence that there was pottery in the Torres Strait, but nothing came up speicifically about Saibai. Still, what makes it plausable is that since Saibai is an alluvial mud island and it contains all the natural resources for making earthenware clay, it would make sense that the aboriginal population long ago might have done pottery. The only issue is that if I want to introduce this idea and there isnt much pottery in their culture, I feel like I would be insensitive to introduce this idea.
