"Reminds me of my Country, Ngilipitji. I was born in Ngukurr but I grew up in Walker River. We start making that weaving stuff there. I learn from my mum, grandma. We had everything we needed there. Dry season we go to Ngilipitji. We always go with
truck. We always go and stay there. We always go back to Country, just waiting for a four wheel drive."
