This story represents women hunting for various bush foods. The Warlpiri women hunt for a number of bush foods at different times of the year. These foods include witchetty grubs, honey ants, desert truffle, bush bananas, bush onions, bush beans, bush carrots, and bush raisins.

Women traditionally dug for the foods using wooden digging sticks. The end of the digging sticks were charred and ground on a stone surface to create a beveled edge. The bush foods collected are traditionally carried in a wooden coolamon, which can be carried with a strap made from snake vine.
