Milbi | Aboriginal Stories from Queensland’s Endeavour River by Tulo Gordon
A long time ago, on the Country of Guugu Yimithirr people, ancient creatures hunted, danced, played and gathered food. The Magpie brothers chased the giant Dingo; the greedy White Cockatoo stole food from two Night Owl sisters; Storm threw lightning at Frill Lizard; and Eagle walked on the ground. As they roamed about, they disturbed the land, making rivers, lagoons and mountains, spreading plants and changing the colour of animals — creating the land we see today.
Tulo Gordon grew up on this Country and knew the old stories. A gifted storyteller and illustrator, Tulo Gordon retells them here in Guugu Yimithirr and English.
