Derran - Black Cockatoo

"The Derran [black cockatoo] is sitting in the tree looking for mayimbooroo [tucker]. He is goorninyanga [hungry]."

Mabel Juli's country is Springvale, south of Warnum. When she paints, Mabel is reminded of the Ngarranggarni (Dreamtime) stories of her country as told to her by her mother and father.
