Wik boys 'Aak Kangk.a'

Our Tucker

Added by Woyan-min Bio-Cultural Project

Description Wik boys head out bush during the season of Kaarp (wetseason) for some bush fruits known in language as 'may yoorp'. These berries are very sweet and are part of a healthy bush-tucker diet.

The boys then enjoy a fun afternoon in the peak of Kaarps big wet at a local waterhole just outside their community of Aurukun.

This film is part of the Aurukun Indigenous Knowledge Centres Bio-Cultural project called 'Woyan-Min' (the Wik-mungkan translation to English is 'the good way').

Supported by the Aurukun Shire Council, State Libraries Queensland and Education Queensland.
