This is the Dreaming story for Yimiri Country where Nada grew up. IN this dreaming story, the Crow pilfered a small kangaroo (marlu) and abandoned its bones near a waterhole. A man, armed with a nulla nulla, approached from behind and struck the Crow for leaving the bones scattered around the waterhole after consuming the choice parts. Gathering all the bones, including the ribs, the man arranged them in a pattern around the waterhole. The nulla nulla was then hurled a great distance to form Margubulga, another waterhole.
