In Far North Queensland I visited the beautiful and remote area of Elim Beach (Thiithaarr) on Guugu Yimithirr country, a tribal nation stretching from River Annan, south of Cooktown, to Princess Charlotte Bay in the north.
This is the story of The Lost Girl.......
The girl had lost her way, wandering far from her elders camp. Now it was night, no one answered when she called.
Growing thirsty she stopped by a waterhole to drink, when hungry she picked berries from a bush. The night grew colder, she huddled beneath an overhanging rock, pressing herself into a hollow that had trapped the warmth of the day. When strong she walked, finally seeing the glow of her people’s campfires.
On return her brother asked ‘Were you afraid? The girl said – ‘How could I be?, I was with my Mother. When thirsty she gave me water; when hungry she fed me; when cold she warmed me, and when lost, she showed me the way home.’
