Aboriginal people from Ngaanyatjarra lands use wild dry grass since they are suitable for teasing out and making into bush string. This string is then woven to create soft dilly bags used as general carryalls. These string bags continue to be made to this day, both for domestic use and for sale to tourists.
While out collecting desert grasses for their fibre art, women visit sacred sites and traditional homelands, hunt and gather food for their families and teach their children about country.
