In the dreamtime more than 300 Emu travelled across the central Australian
region from the west to the north, many of them died leaving behind significant
sites and stories. While they were travelling one of them decided to search for
a particular bush tucker Kujuta (Bush Tomato).
This Emu came across an old Turkey in Ngarleyekwerlang, my Grandfathers country.
The Emu asked the Turkey if he had any Kujuta. The Turkey told the Emu he had
only dry, sweet less Kujuta. The Emu was suspicious and stayed around waiting
for the Turkey to wander off. When the Turkey went away the Emu searched an area
where he had seen the Turkey laying about.
As he walked around he came across a big tree and behind the tree was a deep
trench filled with Kujuta. The Emu tasted one of the Kujuta and it was sweet and
tasty. The Turkey returned and found the Emu eating his hidden store of Kujuta.
They started to argue and began to fight. The Emu tried to hit the Turkey with
his wing and missed, hitting and splitting a Kujuta. The evidence of this story
remains in Ngarleyekwerlang. The trench, the large stones (Kujuta) and the split
stone (Kujuta) caused by the Emu.
