A story of deep significance to women, containing metaphorical references to female cycles. It tells of two
women travelling north. The pair meet with a group of women, including Kutungu, who are caring for a
man who then passes away. They then travel to the area known as Mantaruta, near Uluru, where they have
encounters with a curious wanampi/serpent, chasing him deep into the ground trying to catch him. They
burn their body hair to attract him and hit him on the head and run away. From afar they throw a
manguri/traditional head-ring for carrying which also hits him. Then he comes and revengefully hits them all
over and they travel on bleeding and hurt.
