Description:
Narrative related to a painting done by the main speaker. Discusses a traditional story related to sites including Walgundu and recent events related to bones taken from a cave that is related to the traditional story. Catalogue number of the painting is MT133/11.
Speaker has since passed away
Second half of this text reproduced as an appendix in my PhD thesis (Dickson 2015). It's a moving expression of the speaker's defiance at being told to not use her traditional language.
