Josie Ngwarraye Ross- Bush Medicine Plants

Stretched Canvas

“Bush Medicine plants are used for healing on the body and for drinking. We make this by smashing the plants with a rock, we use the juice and the fibre of the plant. We collect bush medicine plants we are out hunting. Different kinds of plants grow during different seasons. There are lots of different medicines, we know what their stories are, we learnt them from our parents and we teach these stories to our children”

Bush Medicine knowledge is strong in Ampilatwatja, it continues to e passed down to the younger generations and is widely used. When the women go hunting they often gather bush medicine. The plants depicted here are found in the country, they are used for soothing skin infections and to make a drink to help with colds and coughs.
