Abstract

“See that Milky Way: that Wanjina lying down. ’E got his foot in the water. Wanjina come right down to the ground at night-time. We in that water right now; only this fire keep us dry! Spirits floating around all the time, night-time, in that water. We nearly all water ourselves. That’s why we all joined together; trees, animals, plants, humans, heavens, waterholes. We all joined in water.”
