Summary
Noongar Mambara Bakitj was created as part of an Indigenous language recovery project led by Kim Scott and the Wirlomin Noongar Language and Stories Project
Summary
A young man follows a kangaroo track deep into the old people's country. Along the way he meets some spirit creatures ('mambara') who allow him to go on. But after he has hunted down the kangaroo, one mambara is angry and demands a fight ('bakitj'). All day they fight, until the Noongar discovers he is a magic person and defeats the mambara
