A group of women sitting on the ground digging with digging sticks. One of the women speaks about how the poison that will be dumped by the government will destroy their bush foods – honey ants, goannas, kangaroo, emu, bush bananas, yams and wild honey to name a few. A child holds up a honey ant before eating it. We see the group of women walking through the land, the grey hills rise above them in the background.
The land gives physical, philosophical and narrative support to Indigenous peoples. The Dreaming stories for example, are stories about how the land was created. Bush tucker for example, is not comprised of arbitrary meaningless consumable objects in the environment, but creatures like the honey ant also have their own Dreaming story. In other words, in Indigenous belief all things in the environment are connected, and these connections are what is maintained through Indigenous Dreaming stories. The depth of tradition that sustains Indigenous people within the landscape is what will be harmed with the dumping of nuclear waste. And this is what is being expressed when the Indigenous subjects talk about how they will no longer be able to hunt and gather food in their own country.
