Bush Tucker

This painting depicts bush tucker, food collected by karnta (women) while out hunting. There is a wide variety of traditional food that warlpiri people continue to gather and consume as a part of their diet. Many of the foods have their own Jukurrpa (dreaming) associated with them. Some of the common bush tucker foods are ngarlkirdi (witchetty grub), wanakiji (bush tomato), yarla (bush potato),  janmarda (bush onion), ngarlajiyi (bush carrot), Lukarrara (fringe rush seed), and yuparli (bush banana)
