Badger Bates talks about a club he made from Wilcania, New South Wales
This here is one of the clubs I made, or nulla nullas or dukda bida, that means head stick, is made from mulga, I'm Badger Bates from Wilcannia. And what I tried to do with this is, I never polished it, it was cut just with a tommy axe and a machete, and I tried to leave marks in it to show how – sometimes how you can start off with a thing, then you can polish it right up. But I just left this one plain, like this.
