Introduction by Jacob Nayinggul | Kakadu National Park


Jacob Nayinggul
In Kunwinjku, I can tell you that in this country, the trees, the water and streams, and the plants give us our food.

The rainbow serpent which we call Ngalmudj gave these things to us and so we go to our country to look after it and there we can stay in our country and know that all is well.

But we all help each other with our land.

Those neighbours to the south, the west, the east and north - we all help each other to look after our land just as our ancestors did.

That is all I have to say. You know, we all know, that it is a good thing to care for the land we all have.
