The directors of the dance troupe are descendants of the Nunukul, Yuggera, Yugimbir and Nugi tribes. In the south east corridor there are 4 major tribal language groups of the coastal region.
Nugi are the Aboriginal people of Moreton Island, known in the language group as Mugumpin. The Nugi moved in the settlement times to Stradbroke Island, Cherbourg and other various areas, but have still maintained a rich heritage with one of the most beautiful languages spoken in the south east.
