Anwekety, the bush plum, is a Dreaming story given to Gladdy by her grandmother. A type of bush tucker with large leaves and small round edible berries, Anwekety grows abundantly in Ahalpere country and is a major food source for Anmatyerre people. Viewed from above, the changing seasonal colours of the Anwekety dominate the flora on the ground in Ahalpere country.
