Ngurra, country its beautiful its goonmardii (pleanty of food, good country) We can go fishing, we got kangaroos, turkeys, we never cook in the river, we cook up top. I paint to show people how to appreciate country, to not rubbish it, always pick your rubbish up becauase country will be there forever, for generations to generation.
