MUDUNGKALA

Australian Aboriginal Creator Goddess

Creator Goddess and slightly soiled Mother Earth

Whether it’s mud or dung, Mudungkala is very aptly named. She started off in Underearth during Dreamtime, which was more of a nightmare for her, being muddy and smelly.

She had two daughters and a son and felt sure there must be somewhere better to bring them up. Up being the operative word. She pushed and shoved her way to the surface, took up creative gardening on Melville and after a long and fruitful time went back down to her old homestead.

She has never been seen or heard from since. This could be a sign that she’ll be appearing in pantomime next year.
