Bush tucker is a major subject of painting for Aboriginal artists, which is strongly related to the ancient knowledge from their past of hunter-gatherers.
In Tennant Creek, people are still collecting bush tucker 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. Some of the regular bush tuckers painted feature bush sultana jungkka*, plum bush wakuwarlpa*, or bush potato manaji*.
