STORY - Yarla Jukurrpa (Purple)

This Yarla Jukurrpa (Bush Potato Dreaming) comes from an area to the east of Yuendumu Cockatoo Creek. 'Yarla' (Bush Potato) are fibrous tubers that grow beneath a low spreading plant, found by looking for cracks in the ground. This edible tuber grows from 'yartura' (roots) which seek out moisture to sprout new plants. Yarla are good to eat, when cooked they are really soft and tasty.
