Added by PAKAM

Description "Niminjarra" is a story owned by Warnman people of the Great Sandy Desert in WA.
Two young men transformed themselves into snakes to make their way home from law ceremony to their mother in the west. They were pursued by “Niminjarra” spirit beings all the way to Lake Dora.
The two snakes met their fate there, but their spirits entered the salt lake and remain in the water table under the surface. The “Niminjarra” were the ancestors of the Warnman people who live in the region today.
