This book reflects the traditional culture used by the Wiradjuri, Walgalu (Walgaloo) and Ngarigo people who resided in the Snowy Mountains area for thousands of years before white settlers migrated to Australia. Traditional practices and artefacts referred to in the book include making coolamons, using burls to make large bowls, making fire, passing on Dreaming stories, painting using ochre, creating stone tools, weaving and exploring a significant Aboriginal site.
