MANINGRIDA, NORTHERN TERRITORY, AUSTRALIA - OCTOBER 13, 2012:

Lily Gurambara collects Cycad nuts for preparing a special bread that was traditionally baked for funeral ceremonies called Ngatju Bread. The Cycad nut is extremely poisonous and inedible until the poison is leached out by soaking for many days - sometimes weeks.
