Pear Stories

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.
The Pear Story is a 6-minute film developed in 1975 by Wallace Chafe (University of California). It was designed to elicit language samples from around the world. The film is about a man harvesting pears which are stolen by a boy on a bike. The boy has some other adventures with other children, before the farmer discovers that his pears are missing. The 'Pear Stories' film has sound effects, but no words. Here it is played without sound and speakers describe it as it plays. We are sitting at the Intervention donger at Daguragu.
