Wati kutjara nyinanyi (two men are sitting). They are special men and are thinking about what they can turn into. They think about becoming birds but decide they may get hit by a boomerang. They think about becoming rocks but feel they may get walked upon. Finally they decide to become wanampi's (water serpents). They are after minyma kutjara (two women). This is all the country around Piltati where those wanampi now live.
