About Piltati
This is the Wanampi Tjukurpa (water snake men dreaming) for Nyapari. This place is called Piltati. Piltati rockhole is just in the hills, really close to the community. There are two men who are brothers, they are Wanampi (water snake) brothers You can see them there in the middle. The men go hunting in this story and they also sing and dance at their camp. One man says 'what about we go and see about the women'. The other says OK Palya (good) and they put down their weapons (woomera, kulata and miru) and go.
There are little waterholes and big boulders and a liitle creek near Nyapari waterhole that you can see. There are aslo snails, many snails and their tracks. They move around when it rains.
