Rupert Max Stuart, Arrernte Mat-utjarra Elder oversees the preparation of kangaroo by his two descendents. He tells us that he never ate white man’s food growing up and was taught by the old men and ladies. Max is teaching the younger people so that they can teach it after he passes away. As a young man, Rupert Max Stuart tells us, they would get their own meat, but the old men and women would always be fed first. Max tells us that the young fellas are learning two ways – whitefella way and blackfella way. The kangaroo is thrown onto the fire, its body singed.
