We started on the highway near Spice Creek collecting bush tea (pujtilip). Then we went to the other side of the highway looking for 'tirnung' which is the sap of bloodwood 'jartpurru' tree. We couldn't find any. We headed back to Kalkaringi and got some 'lawa' and 'yirrijkaji' from the side of the highway near the first bridge. Afterwards we got some firewood from the side of the Daguragu road in two places.
Gurindji people have many medicines which use local plants. This book and DVD show how we collect some traditional bush medicines, how we cook the medicines, and how we use them to treat our family.
