  • In the Beginning When the World was Soft According to Yindjibarndi law, in the beginning the sky was very low. When the creation spirits, Marrga (The Spirit God of The Land), arose from the ground they raised the sky and the world out of the ocean. This creation story is called Ngurra Nyujunnggamu (When the World was Soft). The Marrga ( The Spirit God of The Land) gave names and form to the country and then to all the birds and animals, finally they created the Ngardangarli (The Aboriginal People).This is a dream time story handed down by our ancestors.
