Spindly Crevice Spirits

Careful where you tread in West Arnhem. The Mimi are very thin spindly little spirits that live in crevices.

It is best to warn them of your approach. If you tread on one, or if you harm a wallaby, they will attack. But they’re mostly very personable and are always willing to teach the arts of dancing, singing and hunting.

The Mimi love nothing better than chasing emus, singing and dancing as they go. They are also fond of scratching stick figure portraits on rocks to mystify archeologists.
