Dogwood Tree Bean Dreaming is a story that comes from the Country near to the Yiningnarra Range, south of Rabbit Flat, and several hundred kilometers to the North West of Yuendumu.

It is here the Napurrula and Nakamarra women traveled and collected seeds and pods of the Dogwood Tree; a species of Acacia Tree. This is a highly prized and valuable food source, in which the seed pods are collected during the summer time, burnt in a fire, then cracked open. The seeds inside the pod are then ground up to make a good staple food. The juice from the seeds is also edible.
