Bolbuh (Mosquito) by Vera Cameron

Bolbuh (Mosquito)

“Bolbuh is mosquito djarno from Malnjangarnak. I’m jungkay (manager) for it. It’s a sacred place, a tree. They’re still in that tree. If we cut it with an axe all the bindu will come out, even the snake. This story is about the King Brown snake as well. Long ago, all the bolbuh speared the snake. He crawled off and where he died he transformed into a rock and stays there today.” – Vera Cameron
