Exhibition Catalogue

Description: “Long time ago – my Country. Lots of people living there [Palm Valley], all my family. There was big camp in Palm Valley at Hermannsburg. People living at a place called Ntaria, a long time agop. Drinking water there, river flowing, Finke River Flowing through. People camping there for long time. All the bords fly in for that water. All the dogs around camp. Emu and Kangaroo other side. So family hunting – they hunt everything, birds duck duck from the water, emu, kangaroo, bush turkey, everything. Everyone sitting by the camp fire, or cleaning camp. Water surrounded by bush flowers – wild flowers everywhere. See all the pitis (coolamons) on top of humpies with bush foods? There’s witchetty grub and honey ant, all the fruit. That’s beautiful, that’s my family on my Country, long time ago.”
