This story was told by Agnes Lippo from the Aboriginal community of Belyuen in the Northern Territory, where people from the Larrakia and Waigite language groups live.

Bill Turner, Head Teacher at Belyuen School in 1987, said The Kangaroo and the Porpoise is one of the many stories from the very small Aboriginal community of Belyuen.

The pages of *Living with ANTs* illustrate the analogy by comparing the actions of ‘ants in your home’ on the left hand page with the ‘ANTs in your head’ on the opposing page. Living with ANT’s...
