“Ngawa ampi nginiwutawa putuwurrupurra awarra ngirraminni api awarra ngawarra ningurimagi. Karri ngapaningimarri ngaruwanajirri ngini ngarikirmi ngirraminni ngini ngawa ngarukuruwala.” (The knowledge our ancestors left for us in the stories is something that we must hold on to. When we gather around we share together what is in the stories that we sing together.)
