Australian Aboriginal Mythology

The Dreaming Gods and Spirits of Oz


Kamilaroi Creator God

Also known as Nurundere, Papang

A general purpose All-Father Sky God

If in doubt, All-Father’s about. He looks after the weather, protects shamans and lives in the moon where he can keep a gleaming eye on everything.

Pictures of him are only to be looked at during initiation rites. For some reason, one of his legs appears to be missing. If found, please return to the Lunar Lost Leggage department.

His father is Baiame but we are still none the wiser.
