Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route (#9)

Sunday Well, 2008, by Dadda Samson, Martumili Artists.

People used to stay here. When people see the whitefella they used to run away, up to the hills and rocks. They were afraid of the whitefellas. My mother and my brothers ran away, right up to Puntawarri because the whitefellas were shooting at the Martu people. They were sneaking in and the gun went off, and they all ran and just kept running and running until they got to Puntawarri.
