Pilbara is the country where we the Yindjibarndi people live and share many of our cultural stories and history that have been passed onto us by our ancestors of how they used to walk through the flat country we call the (Table Lands) visiting family members at nearby stations. Our country has so much to offer. Bush foods and medicine as well as animals such as kangaroo, emu, goanna, and bush turkey. When the rains come our rivers are full and we all love to go out and spend the day fishing. We are also close to the ocean, so we often go fishing there as well. During the holidays many of our families go bush to enjoy what the country offers. The beauty of our country we see through our eyes. Wildflowers bloom as nature takes its course. Our country is still full of riches it always gives me joy to be a part of it. We are connected to our land it is a part of who we are.
