In the beginning, ALTJIRA created the Earth and supplied everything that humans might need — then retired without leaving instructions. Luckily the world was slumbering quite happily in DREAMTIME and the primordial spirits managed to dream their way out of trouble.
Footnote: ALTJIRA is depicted as having emu’s feet, for no reason we can fathom.
Another footnote: due to linguistic confusion by early anthropologists, it’s possible ALTJIRA is not a deity but refers to the DREAMTIME itself. In which case we are at a loss to explain the emu feet.
