The native truffle grows in the sandhills of western Yuendumu, and appears shortly after the winter rains. The growing truffle forces the earth above it to crack, exposing it. Then, the women collect the truffles, squeezing out the juices before cooking it. The truffle is prepared by cooking it in hot ashes.

There are ceremonial practices associated with the native truffle, such as song and dance at a specific location. The circular patterns are often used to represent the native truffle that the women have collected.
