WIYATHUL
(G.Yunupingu)

Two scrub fowl crying out, looking for Guwalilna
the calls like woman crying, looking for Murrurnawu
the cries returning his mind to the jungles at Mutlwutjna

oh place Guwalilna, Warradika, Yumayna, m.m

Oh the old man cries, from the drink
oh dad Kamba-Djunadjuna, home Mayan-naraka bright in his mind
oh my two mums, beloved mums, hold Ruypu Milinditj
oh my two mums, beloved mums, cry for the sacred spring Burarrapu
oh the place Guwalilna, Warradika, Yumayna, m.m

Most Darwin gardeners hate them, but the orange-footed scrubfowl is family to the Gamatj people.

Scrubfowl cry

The late Gurrumul Yunupingu was a Northern Territory treasure.
