Summary
  • "This is a community book about the week long sustainable harvesting bush camp that was held in June 2006 at Jigeengadi (Wire Yard) on Gibb River pastoral station. It shows pictures of how we made things, some of the trees and barks and their language names. It also lists some of the trees and barks and their language names. It also lists some sustainable harvesting techniques that we talked about in workshops. The reason we had the camp was to get out on country for seven days to share knowledge and culture. It was a chance to talk about using trees, barks and plants to make traditional objects and bark paintings for commercial enterprises ... There were 65 people at the camp from all three language groups, Ngarinyin, Worrorra and Wunambal." - p. 1
  • Discussion on sustainable harvesting techniques at Jigeengadi, in the East Kimberley, and the varied uses for various types of local trees and their barks, including for paint, glue, containers, cradles, clap sticks, fire sticks, medicine, spindles, boomerangs, didgeridoos, spears, spear throwers and string
