Dedication:This poem is dedicated to Ruby Hunter
, our much loved singer/song writer, who left us suddenly, on 17 February 2010. A version of this poem was performed at the Australian Poetry Festival, in Goolwa SA 2010. It was included in a collaborative event titled Kumerangke, and included Elders, poets and writers, from Brewarrina, Lake Tyers, Jagera and Victor Harbour. Ruby was a proud Ngarrindjeri woman, and we were proud to say these words on her Land.
