‘Byamee is responsible for all things related to my Country; he is the creator of our fish traps and gave life to the rivers and to all the seeds of life.’
Ralph Rogers, Baranbinja

Stories about the creator Byamee, which are central to the kinship of the Baranbinja and Ngemba people of North West New South Wales, are deeply and vibrantly expressed.
