Ngulu Dreaming - Edible seeds are important to Indigenous people as they formed a large part of their diet. Many of the grasses bear edible seeds. The seeds are collected and traditionally ground using stones to make a flour and this flour is mixed with water to make damper. Some grass seeds are collected by ants first and then the women will go to the ant’s nest and pick up the seed and clean it. They then put it in a coolamon and separate the seeds from the sand, twigs and grass. These seeds have been staple food for Indigenous people before flour was introduced to Australia.
