The Story of Walu & Ngalindi
The Yolngu People say that Walu, the Sun-woman, lights a fire each morning, which we see as the dawn.
She then lights a torch and carries it across the sky from east to west. Throughout the night travels
underground back to her starting camp in the east.
They also tell of Ngalindi, the Moon-man, was once young and slim (the waxing Moon), but grew fat and lazy
(the full Moon). His wives chopped bits off him with their axes (the waning Moon); to escape them he
climbed a tall tree, but died from the wounds (the new Moon). He rose again after 3 days to repeat the cycle.
