They are the nice guys.

They descended from a mountain in the Dreamtime and befriended the shamans of many peoples, teaching them Dreamtime tricks and the use of talismans. They also created hills and valleys, and littered them with trees and plants.

And when the lecherous Kidili came a-calling, they dealt him a most unforgiving blow. See also Kurukadi.
