The Bush yam story is a significant Dreaming to the Kngwarreye and Pwerle clans. As a vital food source to the Aboriginal communities, traditional methods are used to locate the roots. The women perform group ceremonies and pay homage to the spirit of the yam plant to ensure perpetual germination. It’s important to note that the yam plant is one of the most reliable sources of nutrition available; it is most abundant after the rain when the root system is at its most prolific stage of regeneration.
