Djanbokkon and Mimih

‘There is a special kunwaral (like a spirit) called ‘Djanbokkon’. This is a kunwaral that comes from water and no one has seen it. This is a true Kunwaral and she goes everywhere in the country. Her body is striped. She is a secret dog and she has a secret story.  She is the mother of ngalyod (rainbow serpent). If you see on the dolopo of my husbands father – at the art centre, he painted this story a long time ago when he was staying at Marrkolidjban ‘
