“My name is Evelyn Namatjira and this is some of my Story”

“This is a story for young people. To make them understand properly. To help them see the light. They can see about life and the choices you make. So they can recognise and make good judgement. What decisions they’re going to make, good or bad. I’d like this to help them understand properly. To make them feel good.”

“It’s a story about a young fella, staying out of trouble and finding a good job out bush. Away from town and all the trouble there. He’s learning from the older fellas. It’s based on the outstation in my country called Ipolera Station. I grew up there. There’s still lots of people living there and they’re still looking for young fellas to work out there, to teach them. Maybe they’ll stay out of trouble too. They need something to keep them busy.”
