When We Go Walkabout : Yirruwa Yirrilikenuma-Langwa
Yirruwa yirrilikenuma-langwa, amiyembena yirrirringka yirruwa?
When we go walkabout, what do we see?
Up in a tree there is something flapping its wings at us. Duwedirra! Cockatoo!
Down in the river we see something staring at us. Dingarrbiya! Crocodile!
Back home there is someone waiting for us . Dungkwarrika! Grandma!
A beautiful story for the very young that brings to vivid life the unique world of Groote Eylandt.
‘We want our children to hear a story and know where it’s come from and where it’s travelled.’ Rhoda Lalara
‘As children we used to go walkabout with our grandmothers and see the animals. Now we take our own kids out.’ Alfred Lalara
