'Doing Good Work with Families'

One afternoon it was decided to go and look for bush tucker. The Waltja car was full with an excited group of people of all ages to spend time out on country. Old lady Pansy was keen to go after a long time of going without any bush trips. Maureen and Launce Campbell, Lesley Stafford, Eileen Gorey, Daisy Petyarre and 13-year old Anthony Pepperill all jumped in the car.

It was hard to find bush foods in the dry country but there were plenty Inert seeds from the bean tree on the ground. People started collecting the colourful seeds and young Anthony was keen to learn how to use the camera. He followed the action in the creek bed with an eager eye taking lots of good pictures of country and his family. Well done, Anthony! Waltja received funding from the Department of Communication and the Arts for a Bush Food program as part of the ILA grants.
