My Wiradjuri story: I first saw dhundhu at the age of seven. It was at the end of a seven year drought. Dad took to us kids to see the beautiful dhundhu resting on a billabong filled by recent floods. He told us that they were migrating to the east coast from Western Australia. They only stopped because of the water. We had not seen them before because there was not reason for them to lay over. Our area of NSW is not suitable for the life cycle of dhundhu. It was a wondrous sighting! We sat and listened to Dad's talk about the dhundhu and other flood stories. Many years later, I come to learn that our mother's family belongs to the Wiradjuri Mob. We were never told as kids because she was afraid that we would be taken and lost to the Stolen Generation. Dad never broke his promise to her. Family genealogy revealed the truth
