and Wildu: An Adnyamathana Dreaming Story, as told by Cliff Coulthard
in Education Department of South Australia, 1988 A: 25-26.
This story is about
respecting your elders and was passed on to me by the Adnyamathanha elders.
"There is a mountain
just out of Nepabunna and the mountain is shaped like an eagle squatting
with its wings flopping onto the ground, and beside it there's a cave
and the environment
the cave is all dark. Of course at one time there was a magpie,
which we call Urrakurli, a crow, Wakarla, and an eagle called
Wildu. The magpie and the crow at that time had totally white
feathers. They used to be able to live up in the mountain with
the eagle and they used to share the laughter and share the
sad times. They would share their food until one day the magpie
and the crow didn't come.
