ENQUIRE

This country is called Jarriyi, it is pirntinurlkal, claypan country. When the rain falls down and fills the flat areas it makes a big lake. We used to get drinking water here. We sing about this country. In the Ngarrangkarri (Dreamtime) this my country. This is jumu (soakwater) at Winpa.

On the bottom is grass. Salty parts are surrounding the waterhole and the red gravel. On the top are rocks.
