"Dibirdibi means rock cod in our language. It is our father and his father's totem. It was Dibirdibi who cut out the channels cutting Bentinck Island from the mainland. Dibirdibi's final resting place was the high hill Bardathurr on Sweers Island, south-east of Bentinck Island. This place is called Dibirdibi Story Place. In search of water, the old people cut the liver of Dibirdibi to pieces and threw these on to rocks at the foot of a cliff where it became a perpetual spring."
