This is all Ngarrgooroon Country (Texas Downs). Redbutte is a high mountain range to the north east. It can be seen from a long way away. The mountains pick up many of the colours from the sun at different times of the day, but they are always looking red in some parts. To the south of Red Butte is Joel Springs and further south is Buffalo Hole country where my Aunty Nancy was born in the bush. (Charlene’s father is Churchill Cann and his full sister is Nancy Nodea, both International Artists). This place all around Red Butte has many Stories from the Ngarrangkarni (Dreamtime). My father knows them all. This part of Texas is very beautiful and important to our family – Dad and Aunty (Nancy) are the Traditional Owners of this part.
