Long time ago – my Country. Lots of people living there [Palm Valley]. There was big camp in Palm Valley at Hermannsburg. People living at a place called Ntaria [Hermannsburg]. A long time ago. Drinking water there, camping there for long time. All the birds fly in for that water. So family hunting birds – duck duck - from the water.
Everyone sitting by the camp fire, or cleaning camp. Water surrounded by bush flowers – wild flowers everywhere, but we clean them from camp – all clear, see? See them bringing duck back for eating. There’s kangaroo and bush tucker and witchetty grub. One old man and old woman sitting waiting for their share of food – kangaroo, duck duck, bush tucker – and then all will eat. That’s beautiful, that’s my family on my Country, long time ago.
