The stories relate to localities within bulmba (country, homeland) of the Djabugay-speaking bama (Aboriginal people) of northern Queensland. Such places... are associated with the Storytime, the time of the world's making and the travels and exploits of the ancestral creator beings. Such places are Bulurru, Storyplaces or Storywaters... Bulurru links the past with the present, the land with the people, the people with Ancestral Law. Source: Bulurru: Storywaters (1990) Kuranda : Michael Quinn , 1990 pg. 17-28
