- Wunambal people (K22) (WA SD-12)
This traditional story comes from the author Daisy Utemorrah's memories of stories told to her during her childhood. Two children are supposed to be going to sleep, but they disobey their mother and stay awake to watch the moon, and there are consequences of their action. This read aloud book also contains a play text.
Daisy Utemorrah was an elder of the Wunambal people from the Mitchell Plateau area in the far north Kimberley. She was born in 1922 at Kunmunya Mission and her family background gave her fluency in three Aboriginal languages. Daisy has been recognised for her work as a poet and a teacher.
