Dorothy is telling the story of the early days at Mantamaru (Jameson) when the lived in wiltjas – traditional shelters made of trees and branches. Then houses were built along with the clinic, store, office and youth centre. She has included a pool even though there isn’t one yet in Mantamaru. There is the footy oval, basket ball court, planes on the airstrip, and the horses that regularly come into the community looking for water. In the middles is a group of people having a community meeting.
