Simplicia paints a story about an old lady who travelled around with her six kids looking for food and water. When the old lady couldn't find anything, she started making a hole and then the water came out. Lots of different animals came to the waterhole. The old lady made four islands like Darwin, Bathurst and here (Melville Island). She made the waters and all the sea animals like crabs, barramundis, mud mussels, longbums, stingrays, turtles, dugongs, fishes that were good for food. Then she made the islands. The old lady travelled with her kids on her back, making the islands. Old and young people came and they were making a fire and dancing around it. They were happy for all the water everywhere.
