Amongst the dry shrubs of Far North Queensland's savannah, about 350 kilometres' drive inland from Cairns, Jimmy Richards hits the ground with his stick and tells me, "We're dusty people". In comparison to the Indigenous countries in the coastal rainforest, sure, the Ewamian people have more dust around them out here, but at Talaroo, where I'm meeting Jimmy, it's the water that's getting all the attention.
