Title: Collecting Yalka (Bush onion) after the rain
This painting story is about the women and children all going out together after a big rain. They are looking for Yalka. ( Bush Onion). The children are helping, some go to the sandhill and dig for Goanna and the other ones go to the Maku bush and dig up the really fat Maku. Everyone comes back to the fire and cooks their bush food. We sit around the fire and tell stories, we tell our children the Tjukurpa (Dreaming stories) We are all happy and tired after a good day hunting with our families.
