Yugambeh and Proud

~Yugambeh interpretations provided by Shaun Davis, Yugambeh Library 

 

Yugambeh

 

Minyang ganngahla mambi ngalingah?
Yili ganngalehla wahlu?
Jengu juluhnah, ngi?
Jinggi ganngahla nguy?
 
Mijung ngali, yaway
Baling-ngaringgahla wahlu?
Nga gannganyun wahlu
Ganngaleh wunga gawal?

 

English

 

What you know about our people
Where you hear it from?
Is it from the gecko’s mouth
How you know it’s right or wrong?
 
Do you know why we’re proud
Can you make a leap?
And when you really listen
Is your listening deep?
