Men Hunting

As described by Janet Long Nakamarra

There are men sitting beside the water hole with their spears, boomerangs and woomeras. The men wait for the animals to come to the water hole. They sit and wait until 6pm but nothing appears. The men go home until the next morning. They go back to the same water hole and await. Nothing happens so they all sit and wait. Until something appears. When they get 2 or 3 animal that's enough to feed the family. Men only hunt whenever they feel like it or when they want to go hunting. Woman does more hunting because women loves digging yams, goannas, carrots plus they hunt for other food.
