Yoondi's story continued
When wadjela come, not so long time ago, our people showed them the water holes and bush tucker and animals that were good to eat. Then the wadjela brought new animals and pulled down the trees where koomal (possums) lived. He built fences over the land where yonger (kangaroo) grazed. He brought sickness bush medicines could not make better and our people began to die. Soon the old ways disappeared. Noongars had to work for the wadjela to keep alive. Sugar, tea, flour and blankets they gave us. Blankets don't keep rain out like yonger skins.
