Languna (Magpie Geese)
“Languna are flying over the yarlbun in the billabong. They used to spear them with spear, hit them with stones or sticks. But now days they get them with rifle. They are very good for eating, the meat is so delicious”.
Gooya (all the fish)
“This is barramundi, sharrapin, two black bream, and maruwugu, and all the little tiny bream swimming happily ever after in the weeds. We do a lot of fishing and they are all good for eating. We can boil em, cook in ashes, fry them, anything.
Yarlbun (water lily)
“That’s yarlbun, jojo and them flowers are yarlbun flower. You can take the seed out and put it in the sun to dry, when it’s dry then you crush it into a flour to make damper.”
Cooliman with Yarlbun
“That’s the cooliman with yarlbun. The green round ones with seed inside are yarlbun (lily seed) and the brown ones are the garnaya (lily root). Them stalks are jawjaw (lily stalk), the flowers are yarlbun flowers. We make flour out of the yarlbun seed, make it into a damper to cook on the hot ashes. The garnaya you can boil or cook under the ashes too. Jawjaw is like celery, you can just chew it. We eat them all raw too. Old people used to survive off that.” - Margaret Duncan
