Waanungga

'Waanungga' is a word that describes various forms of bush honey. 'Sugarbag' is the hive in which honey is stored and wich can be found in trees and in termite mounds. The Wandjinas keep the countryside fresh and healthy which allows the native bees to produce high quality honey in Gudu’s homeland. Gudu’s name ‘Guduwolla’ is Ngarinyin for a particular tree which is favoured by Kimberley honey-flies. It’s white pollen is conspicuous from August until September, and is the main source of bush sugar in The Kimberley.
