Tjukurpa minyma ninu palampa tjitji kutjara (this is the dreamtime story about the bilby woman and her two little boys). This is the story for Kalka. That minyma ninu (bilby woman) and her family were eating all the maku (witchetty grubs). There are a lot of different maku, tjilka-tjilka, punti, ngarkalya and kanturangu. She ate so much that there were only ngingirpa left (little immature ones). The wati mututa (ant men) got really angry and they chased the bilby family, husband, wife and kids and speared them. They finished off close to Pipalytjara at Iririiriri.
