The Yams from Waputarli and Yumurrpa
by Yulyulu Lorna Napurrurla, Lajamanu, 1984
translated from Warlpiri with Barbara Gibson Nakamarra (1984, 1995) and edited for the CD-ROM Dream trackers (UNESCO, 2000) by Barbara Glowczewski

Waputarli got a snake.
In Yumurrpa, too, there is a big snake...
wiyarrpa, ngarlajiyi nyinaja Jukurrpa
Poor one, Yam Dreaming was sitting there. He went underground in Waputarli.

Yarla, Puurda, the big yam and wapirti, the little Yam fought each other.
