Warlpiri ritual leader from Lajamanu, Central Australia, Nakakut Barbara Gibson Nakamarra, recounts her dream revelation of two songs for totemic ancestors of the Rain and Emu Dreamings (Jukurrpa). She explains how the dream took her on a journey from her country in the Tanami desert, where she was living hunting and gathering until she was moved to a reserve. The dream takes her up dancing with ancestral women up North where one Emu songline disappears in the Ocean. The testimony ends with the magic reunion of the narrator and the book’s author at the birth of her second baby in Broome, Western Australia.
