Witchetty grubs (endoxyla leucomocla*) is one of the main bush tuckers and a major subject of painting for Aboriginal artists that is strongly related to the ancient knowledge from their past of hunter-gatherers.
In Mungkarta, people are still collecting bush tuckers to feed their family and provide a healthy alternative to the Western foods and a good way to teach about the bush to the young generation. It is also a good opportunity to gather the whole family.
