’That’s a hill around this side, ’round here in the [Warmun] community. This the place for Eagle and Crow Dreaming,’ says Lorraine Daylight.
In the Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) the eagle told the crow (his wife) to cook some kangaroo for him to eat. She was lazy and so she fell asleep instead. When she woke up the crow wanted to eat the meat that the eagle had cooked. The eagle burned up white rock (manjal - white quartz) until it became a red-hot spearhead and he stabbed the crow in the eye. That is why some crows have a white eye. This is the Ngarrangkarni story for Warmun Community.
White rock can be seen on the hills - it is the kangaroo’s fat and the eagle’s spearhead from the Ngarrangkarni.
