Waterholes

"These are many waterholes in my country. The yellow is the water in the hills in the rocks. The ten rockpools are in the cliffs. The rockpools is where you find mudu [red ochre]. The blue waterholes are soak waterholes. This place is south of Balgo. Yagga Yagga is the name of this place. This is my father mob country, desert country, we’ve been getting water here for a long time. This place is far away, we never go back there now, too far."
