„This is kapi tjukula (the deep rockholes) and karu (the creek lines) in my country Cave Hill. This is a sacred place for the Seven Sisters Dreaming.

Minyma tjuta (the sisters) are sitting inside the cave, they have been collecting bush tucker, desert raisins and bush tomatos. They wait inside the cave, hiding from the cheeky man, Wati Nyiru.

This country is from my father.
