Two water serpent men and two young women are from Piltati. The women's mother is Malilu and the women's names are Atatjara and Wanyinyinta. Malilu ate the wood that is used to stitch the stomach of the euro because she was blind. When her daughters were away she smelt smoke and went in that direction, she was killed by another tribe on the way. They leave all the stories along that creek.
