"One day, I went fishing with Dad. As I was walking along behind him I was dragging my spear on the beach which was leaving a long line behind me. HE told me to stop doing that. HE continued telling me that if I made a mark, or dig, with no reason at all, I've been hurting the bones of the traditional people of tht land. We must only dig and make marks on the ground when we perform or gather food." 1
