“Kaalpa is the home of our ancestors, where they hunted and lived from the land. They’re deeply connected to this land, and have been for thousands of years. I remember the feeling of returning to the land for the first time as an adult. Some of my elders took me there and told me: “This is your Country, this is your home. It’s yours and your little sister’s and your grandfathers’ country.”
I went hunting there, got a parnajarrpa (sand goanna). It’s got kapi (water) there, a well, jurnu (soak) and tuwa (sandhills)” When I went there I was pukurlpa (happy inside). It opened up my spirt, and felt like home. Ngurra is home.”
