Recorded near Camfield and Japarta (Lonely Springs) Violet Donald, Jimmy Wavehill, Biddy Wavehill and Topsy Dodd are collecting wood to make coolamons (kawarla). Traditionally coolamons were used to carry babies and food and medicine plants. They were also used to transport water. Nowadays they are most commonly painted and sold. The wood is from the ngimpija or kulunyjurru tree (Gyrocarpus americanus). The wood from this tree is very light and good for making coolamons. The bark is silver-gold and is easy to spot from a distance. It is quite thick and spongy. Note actually recording on a separate tape on a not so great video camera.
