Teddy Portaminni is a traditional owner, educator and well-respected Tiwi elder on a mission to educate people about the Tiwi Islands' rich and ancient culture. Along with his wife, Teresia and his extended family, he offers visitors the chance to experience and learn about Tiwi culture in the form of Tarntipi Bush Camps on traditional homelands of Tarntipi, a twenty-minute drive out of Wurrumiyanga community on Bathurst Island. Find out more about Tarntipi Bush Camp on this website.
