Nyangatja Watarru (this is the place called Watarru). Watarru is my home. This is Anangu tjuta (many Anangu (people)). Anangu tjuta are moving around, moving between waterholes and creeks, and looking for food. They go out in the daytime, looking around the country, looking through the bush. They look for food and bring what they find back to they kids at the camp.
When the water finishes at one place, they move on to the next waterhole. If there’s no water, they keep walking until they find something. Knowing where to find the water is special knowledge. There is water in a lot of unlikely places. There are creeks, waterholes, rockholes, soakage’s and springs. Kapi wiru (good water).Share
