|Artist statement|| |
Little men, they live in hill and scrub country or near jila (waterhole). They look like watersnakes. They don't like strangers. They can make people sick. They fight over honey. If you find a big mob of honey, fill up your billy-can, they will come out and fight you, give you a good hiding. You can't see them or feel them, but after, when you drink the water, you see the lumps on your body.
