Yakou or also known as Yibali - its Aboriginal name for Dilly bag . A Yakou is a bag worn around the neck to hold bush tucker like berries, meat, fish etc. Yakou is normally woven out of vines or tough dried grasses and sometimes had feather or animal fur inside the bag to stop small pieces of food falling through holes in the weave. Mainly used by Aboriginal women to gather food but can be used by men to help carry some tools for hunting.
