Comment on Eagle and Crow: Andrew Spencer Japaljarri by Colin Japaljarri Youl.

Japaljarri gave me my skin name in 1982. My family became his family over the years we saw each other many times.
He stayed at my home, I was guest in his home too.
We went to sites and he shared his Jukurrpa with me. He taught me more and better Warlpiri.
He was my gracious friend and brother and I am proud that I knew him, and will never forget him.
