Lungarung

“This is my country, Lungurang country. It is on the Canning Stock road in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia. This is where I was born, I travelled around this place as a young women, walking through the sand dunes (tali), collecting Mayi (bushfood) with my mother. We hunted kuwi, and sat down there. We didn't have clothes then. I had two brothers. It is this side (west side) of Winpa in Western Australia. It is desert country, proper one, it is my country. We get him bush onion (junta), near the jila. We sing for him, and there is plenty there. We grind him up and cook him, he is good mungarri (bush tucker). There is a warla (mud flats) there.”
