The first human to die, allegedly killed by the [WANDJINA] for reasons now lost in the mists of time.His utterly shocked wife was at a bit of a loss. So she shaved her head and smeared herself with ashes. It seemed the right thing to do at the time. So she invented mourning quite by accident.
But the process of death had not really been fixed or finalized back then — and three days later WIDJINGARA came back.
Unfortunately, he was so surprised and upset by his wife's mournful appearance that the shock killed him again. The human race has had death and mourning ever since.
