Jones Biilly

Jones was born and bred Minyerri. His mother Josie is one of the nine Wilfred sisters. His father’s country is Arnhem Land. Minyerri is 270km out from Katherine, past Mataranka, on the Roper Highway.

"Minyerri, it's a good place to live – our ancestors have lived here for a long long time. My grandfather was the key holder, Djungaya for this place. Minyerri lifestyle is good – but not much happens around here! Most of the time we love going hunting and camping with our families. Now we’ve got 4WD it’s a lot better – long-time ago people had to walk out to go camping.

My mum’s mum was a real grandma to everyone - she was the one who taught me everything about hunting, bush food, how to survive in the bush. If I break down in the bush, I know how to find water because of her. Since I was a kid, I’ve loved going out bush: fishing, walking around in the bush, looking for bush tucker, hunting; you never get bored in the bush."
