|The Dreaming - Rock Legends||| Print ||
At the close of the Tjukurpa period - the time of creation when heroes carried out their mighty deeds - a big, flat sandhill turned to stone and became Uluru.The carpet-snake people, the Kuniya, made their camp here, but Liru, venomous snake men, led by the great warrior Kulikudgeri, attacked the camp. A powerful Kuniya woman, Pulari, wishing to protect her newly born child, spat out the essence of death and killed many Liru.
Mkulikudgeri slew a young warrior who challenged him to a fight to the death, but the youth's mother struck Kulikudgeri a blow on the nose with her digging stick and he died in agony.
Geographical features of the Rock now mark these activities. Potholes are marks of the Liru spear, a large boulder was once the body of Pulari, KuliKudgeri became a boulder with his nose the entrance to Maggie Springs.The warrier he killed crawled away and his track became a water course.
