 Minha Ko'an is our Kugu word for Magpie Geese. These are large powerful birds. They live here in abundance when the wet season is here. The wet season allows for lots of grasses and plants that are their main food source. Our old people used to hunt them with spears while hiding behind a branch held in front of them . Some people still hunt them but now they use a shotgun. Many people gather their eggs of their nests. They are larger then a chicken's eggs and taste similar. Magpie geese are an important totem for us. We are both custodian's of country.
