The Meaning Of Bulurru

Damarri is also called Bulurru. Bulurru is how Djabugay refer to the Dreaming. Storywaters, or locations associated with the Dreaming as well as the ancestral beings associated with them are known as Bulurru. Bulurru is considered to be 'the source and condition of all life and is ever-present in the land and people'.

Some Djabugay people today think of Bulurru as 'our God', as distinct from the Christian God they were taught to worship in the mission. Others think of Bulurru as simply the Djabugay name for the one and only God, also the Christian God, which they have always worshipped
