Wati Ngintaka Story #3


Wati Ngintaka (wati = man, ngintaka = goanna) stole the grinding stone and ran away with it. He took it from a place called Walatina near Mintabie in South Australia. He then travelled through the Pitjantjatjara lands with all the tribesmen after him, so Wati Ngintaka changed his paint as he went along. He ended up at Anagtja near Amata. There was a big salt lake there where they had a big fight but Wati Ngintaka got away. He then ended up at a place called Uran in Western Australia where the tribesmen stabbed him in the foot and then cut him up. He can be seen there to this day at the mountain at Uran (Wild Orange Country).
