Kurlkurta

My country Kurlkurta. My father’s country. My dreaming. Yuwa there is kapi there. The people go there to camp. Families go there. They go for hunting for kuka. If the water finish, they move. They move to another country, to another rock hole. They go to that big rock hole. Wanambi there. He laying there with the water and they put camp there and they stay there. He is danger. Yuwa, danger. He will kill you. You gotta go with a man. Man save your life. If woman go, it kill her. There in the rock hole. They’re still there. People.
That Tjukurrpa, that’s for man. Man dreaming.
