Nawu Karriyiwarlbun (Hunting Tools)

When, long ago, people used to go hunting, they would take stone axes, dilly bags, digging sticks, spears and spear-thrower. The men would take spears, stone knife, stone axe. And the women used to take pandanus baskets, dilly bags, and digging sticks for getting roots and berries. But if they were looking for game, like Kangaroo or emu, they would take hunting tools. They would get food like long yam, cheeky (round) yam and water peanut and plenty of other food. But nowadays when we go hunting we take rifles made by white people, so we can shoot animals far off.
