The Yolngu are known for being hunter-gatherers, hunting all types of wildlife, including kangaroos. Traditionally this was their main source of income. In more recent times, however, missionaries have introduced other market goods and many of the community are employed by the government. The Yolngu follows a seasonal calendar with six different seasons. These are Midawarr, Dharratharramirri, Rarranhdharr, Barra ‘mirri, Dhuludur, Mayaltha, and Gunmul.
