Angela Wurrumara is a Warnindilyakwa woman from Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory, situated on the western side of the Gulf of Carpentaria, approximately 600km south east of Darwin.

Angela is a custodian for her tribe, the Wurramara tribe from Milyakbura (Bickerton Island) and as such has been entrusted by the elders to hold, teach and share the dance of this community. After graduating from the Aboriginal Centre for Performing Arts in Brisbane, Angela returned to her community to work with young people to develop skills in both traditional and contemporary dance, as a means of addressing youth suicide and crime.
