Pitthirrit (The Plover) – 2019 Gunditjmara Dreaming Story (Ancestral Narrative)

Tuy-ron was an avid and accomplished hunter, his favourite thing to hunt was Kuyang, fresh water eels.  He carried his spears, one in each hand, hunting them all day among the fish traps made from volcanic stone.  He loved hunting eel so much, that one day he began to transform, he had grown wings and feathers.  He had turned into Pitthirrit, the plover, with his two spears still there on his arms and the white ochre painted on his chest.
