Abstract: Ned Jampijinpa Hargraves sits at Walura, the name of 'a lizard that belongs to this area here' near Yuendumu. He discusses the rich cultural significance of this place, and the impact of cattle, 'the destroyers of the country. They eat all the good food … A lot of our things are dying and we need to try and keep them alive … to show the plants and goannas and lizards and snakes because it’s in the jukurrpa, in your country, that’s where it is.'
