last friday, the 4th. i was privileged to be able to go on a hunt organised by CDEP with some local aboriginal boys, we had to drive around in a troop carrier to pick em all up from their abodes in and around the small community of angurugu.
It’s a pretty real little suburb, i felt a bit uneasy just shooting out the window of the car so this is all i got of that.
i hope to capture more of this in later times as i find it all quite fascinating.
we headed out on a normal looking road that soon turned into what was in some sections basically driving down sections of a small creek.
here are the guys.
we ended up on the beach at the mouth of a river i dont know the name of.
of course the scenery is jaw dropping, seems like the general idea here.
i can see this blog is very fast going to turn from the ur-banality and depression of those pockets of ghetto suburbia in melb, to the polar opposite landscape and related of groote eylandt.
thats wayne with that spear.
kieran on the lookout.
logan, havin a cruise for possible game.
how is this place!??
we didnt have much luck finding any food to snag so we ended up having a little BBQ instead.
the CDEP troopy
the boys, am i mistaken for thinking they kinda look like some radical indigenous boy band?
scratch that, make it gangster rap!
so good. so friendly, they speak mainly in their native tongue which is just great to hear!
L-R: kieran, lee, dixon and brian
logan above and below, he caught a big crab which i missed snapping just before we left and quickly cooked it up in the coals of our beachside fire.
back down the track/creek to angurugu…
