About Piltati
This is Piltati. Piltati is a very important story about the two wanampi (ancestral serpents) and their two wives. The two women travelled everywhere digging for food. Each day they would dig fro kuka upupilya (tadpoles) or collect wild berries like kampurarpa. They always took food back to their two husbands. One day they got tired of working so hard and thought to themselves "we might not take all this food to the men, maybe we'll eat some first". The men got angry with the women for taking so long to bring the food back and decided to trick the women by turning into water snakes.
