Right-o this country is north of Nicholson. Flatland in the middle with mountains all around. This is Law country. The old
people would go there for meetings sometimes camp there for a long time. They would talk and make the law for all the
tribes around. Talk about ceremonies, Men and Women’s Law. Men’s Law is usually in hot time (January) and Women’s
Law in cooler time. I have painted the land in hot time during Men’s Law.
