A Family Moves Camp and Gathers Food

Dunlop, Ian
A nomadic family of the Western Desert moves from Yalara camp to Tika Tika camp a days walk away. On the way they gather fruit, grass seed, lizards and a rabbit eared bandicoot. After making camp and getting water from a deep well, they cook some of the food. This is an edited sequence shot over several days. The family consisted of a man, two wives and four children. They were in fact living at Warburton Mission at this time and were taken out to their own country by the film unit to do the filming.
