THE STORY: THE WATERHOLE IS FULL. THERE IS PLENTY OF GREEN FOLIAGE AND SHADE DURING THE WET SEASON. SWIMMING AND DIVING TO CATCH FISH. GOING DOWN DEEP AMONGST THE ROCKS WHERE THE BIG FISH LAZE. GENERATION AFTER GENERATION, WE ARE TAUGHT HOW TO FISH BY HAND AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE TRIBE. WE KNOW WE MUST LEAVE FISH IN THE WATER FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO FEAST. WHEN WE ARE FINISHED WITH THE FISH, WE USE THE BONES TO ADORN OUR BODIES FOR CEREMONY AND TRADE.
