Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant stork. The stork travelled across the country from the east to the west, initially traveling with a termite dreaming from Warntungurru to Warlura a waterhole situated 8 miles east of Yuendumu. A Warlura a gecko called Yumariyumari blew the stork on to Lapurrukurra and Wilpiri. Bolts of lightning shot out at Wirnpa and at Kanaralji. At this point, the Dreaming track also includes the children of the clouds Dreaming. the water Dreaming build hills using baby clouds and also stuck long pointy clouds into the ground at Jukajuka where they can still be seen today as rock formations.
