Small Steel Dog From Warlukurlangu Artists Of Yuendumu
Dogs in Warlpiri are called ‘Jarntu’ or ‘maliki’ . Families in Yuendumu tend to own many dogs. They are good ‘marlpa’ (company). Many people think of their dogs as ‘warlalja’ (family). Dogs in Yuendumu like to follow their owners around whenever they can.
Some people use their dogs to help them hunt ‘marlu’ (kangaroo) and ‘wardapi’ (goanna), among other animals. People also have dogs to protect themselves from intruders, monsters, and other things that might try to hurt them and their family. Many monsters are invisible to ‘yapa’ (Aboriginal people). However, dogs are able to see and smell them. Dogs will warn ‘yapa’ about them or steer them away from the monsters, and thereby keep them safe.
‘Jarntu’ or ‘maliki’ also feature in a number of ‘Jukurrpa’ (Dreaming) stories. One ‘maliki Jukurrpa’ (dog Dreaming) comes from a site called Pindara, southwest of Yuendumu. Another dog Dreaming story, ‘malikijarra Jukurrpa’ (two dogs Dreaming), comes from country adjacent to Warlarla (Rabbit Flat). This site is part of a long Dreaming track that stretches from Yarrajalpa in the extreme west of Warlpiri country to Warlaku (Ali Curung) in the east. This Dreaming story describes proper conduct in families and marriages.
Perfect compliment for a Sourdough or Rye toast in the morning, it will overpower wussy white bread so go for stronger bodied breads.
Also used as a spicy chutney, baste on duck in the last 15 minutes of cooking or as a starter in stir fry. Use as the flavour in a spicy sauce or syrup & can be used a substitute for tamarind paste in Asian style cooking.
"We can only stay for one day. When the sun goes down we have to go back into the sky so that all the people on earth can see us."

Rainforest Plum Jam
A wonderfully tart and rich jam made from the Davidsons Rainforest Plum. This tangy, tart & rich jam is for those who are looking for a little kick in the morning. Definitely not sweet, the experience starts with the wonderful dark burgundy/crimson/purple colour and once tasted a delicious tang travels from the tip of your tongue to the back of your palate, followed by a development of the flavour and then another tingle comes from the back of your palate to the front!
Quite different to your typical supermarket jams, an experience that keeps people coming back for more and more. Wonderful on ice-cream or swirl through a plain yogurt.
