"My Dad was born on the edge of Kabararrji south of Bentinck Island. So he carries the name Kabararrjingathi,
his country – that's why he is called "Gabori”, the English corruption of the place name. There are lots of grass
there called malbaa that the women use to gather to make woven grass bags called miiild."
