Natural Bridge  Burrigan’s Cave and the Rainbow Serpent Creation Lore

 

The whole of the Wollumbin Caldera rim has many significant Feathered Serpent Starlore, Marriage Lore, Creation Lore and Increase and Initiation Ritual sites, which the ancestral people, the Yoocum Yoocum,  call ‘Djurebil’ – sacred sites of lore.

The sites associated with Warrazum , the Rainbow Serpent are most sacred…but they don’t just stop at Wollumbin……..like the waters,  they travel,  through the landscape, following the stars, above….. thus Spirit, Lore, Land and Language are linked “……

The Yoocum Yoocum call their sacred lore ‘Bootheram’ or ‘Boojeram’….Boodjera means Love ……and Creation is always about Love stories” …….

Burrigans Cave  – Natural Bridge –  is a sacred creation site for the Yoocum Yoocum, which is part of a  ‘complex’ of connected Djurebil,   located high on the Mesa’s of the Wollumbin Caldera Rim.

Burrigan is a Yoocum Yoocum Culture Hero – an important Star Ancestor…and he comes down from the stars to teach lore…

 

 

Natural Bridge in the Springbrook National Park …..it is the home of the Kalibal or Gullival tribe  of the Yoocum Yoocum moiety…and it is an Eel djurebil increase site….

Grandmother Rainbow Serpent, Warrzum, and the Seven Sisters, Wiangarie , created the primordial waters…. Way back in  the Alcheringa, which means ‘the beginning’ , when there was no plants or animals…the earth was very new….

Grand Mother Warrzum and the Seven Wiangaree came in to this ancient country through the waters – bringing the fresh ‘water of life’….

Grand Mother Warrzum and the Seven Wiangaree, , traveled into the primordial landscape…….Warrzum carved the underground caverns… creating underground rivers under the volcanoes….cooling the ancient landscape, all the way across the continent…..and Wiangaree , the Seven Sisters, used their magic digging sticks to release the springs of fresh water throughout the prehistoric landscape.

This Women’s Water Lore teaches us how through the waters how all life is created and connected …..

Burrigan is the Yoocum Yoocum sky ancestor akin to  Jesus….. a Burram Yanbuhyn-  a teacher of the lore  – instructing how to be a good moral being and live in unity with all creation ….
