Yoondanup (near Black Point). Koora koora (a long time ago) there came boranga boongorang (a great shaking). Where there were hills before the great shaking happened, there were plains; where there were plains there were great hills. After this great shaking there were fearful rushes of wind accompanied with smoke and dust which lasted some considerable time, perhaps a day or a night or a little longer. The men, women and children were in a bad way from the foul air they had to breathe, that lots of them died from the effects. All of a sudden, a very strong wind came and revived all that survived the foul air and smoke. Then suddenly there was a great shock and terrible claps of thunder and great waters rushed all over the low land. The remnants of the people and the animals were on the higher ground and so escaped the big water. After a little while this strange big water rushed back and left quantities of fish, most sorts of which they had never seen before, jumping about all over the ground below the elevated ground they were on. Prior to this event people lived around a freshwater lake, the event inundated the lake with seawater and they were unable to sustain themselves. There was trouble amongst them and to resolve the trouble they decided to split up and bands of them went in all directions. The people who camped there moved north; many people up north believe this is where they came from. Since then people have been walking that route northwards, some go north to Wiluna to see family. Many of us are connected up as far as Yirramagurdu (Roebourne).
