Part of a traditional Aboriginal diet, bardi grubs feed on gum tree roots for several years while growing in size. A woman uses a crowbar to dig under a tree. Another woman shows which trees to dig under.
An Aboriginal woman uses a butter knife to pry grubs from tree roots and cooks them in hot ash.
