There were two men (some say it was a family group) and one little boy, who had no parents and was neglected, camping at the rock hole. The men went hunting and the little boy stayed behind. The men returned with an emu and pulled out its heart. The boy was holding the heart and blood spilt onto the rocks. He ran away with the heart and turned into wind. The emu’s blood trail stained the rocks and it can still be seen there today. Big willie willies came up aferwards and swept the men or the families away.
Walu rock hole is a special place north of Papulankutja (Blackstone) where traditionally Yarnangu families would gather when water was available in the holes found among the rocks. The rock holes across the lands vary in size from as large as a car to as small as a deep kitchen sink. They can be found buried in the flat rock surface on the ground, at the bottom of a waterfall or among the ranges where there is an expanse of flat rock surface. Yarnangu kept these rock holes clear of dirt build up, dead animals, debris etc so the water was drinkable. No one was allowed to swim in the rock holes that were used for drinking and cooking.
