  • This one is the woman Lisard 'Linga' drinking water from the rockhole Tjintita. All the Wati Wanambi (army of watersnakes) see her drinking from this water and say 'hey this woman drinking water, let's go and kill her'. They kill her here and take her and put her in the hole at Wanambi ngura Nigultu. Don't drink the water. Only dingo drink the water not all the people - it's too dangerous. These marks are the spear marks. This one is sandhillo country, all along. This side of Ilurpa in Western Australia. This is my country.
