This Dreaming belongs to Warlukurlangu country to the south-east of Yuendumu. An old man lived on a hill with his two sons. The old man would feign blindness and send the two boys hunting for meat. While they were gone he would hunt and eat anything he caught before they returned. One day the sons returned with a kangaroo that they had caught. Unfortuantely, unbeknown to the boys, the kangaroo was a sacred animal to the old man and the next time they went out hunting he punished them by putting a fire stick to the ground which sent a huge fire after them and chased them for many miles.
