This Jukurrpa tells the story of a Japangardi man named Wamaru who travelled south from Jarrardajarrayi to Yarripilangu. When Wamaru arrived he approached a group of 'karnta' (women) that were sitting in a circle on the ground. Wanting to woo a woman within the circle, a Nungarrari woman named Yurlkurinyi, but was the wrong skin for him. By tribal law this woman was his mother-in-law and their relationship would be Taboo. Wamaru wooed the woman and developed a relationship, they travelled up Hill in Yarripilangu together. When they arrived the earth turned to white ochre and the man turned himself and the karnta into 'wardapi' (goannas)
