Annotator's note:
Yilidji is a sand dune between Kurdantiga and Ngarindji, in the Nangu estate. Obviously the first part is "you climb Yilidji". Noone knows what wumbarambara is except to say that when people are dancing they wave one hand around above their heads in a circle. Lawrence suggests it may have something to do with this motion.
