As told by Susan: "When I was little I used to go hunting with the elders, we would hunt for fish, turtle, crab, yam, and mud mussels - or any bush tucker that was there. My father took us out in an old canoe. We made Tunga (basket) from bark and bush string and we carried it on our shoulder or put the strap across the top if our head, this made it easy to throw our bush tucker over our shoulder into the Tunga, especially the big yams!"
