Families from all over the place, especially from the Blackstone Ranges area, were at Walu eating Emu meat. As they ate, they discarded the yellow fat from the meat throwing it onto the ground, and nowadays, the trees surrounding Walu are yellow because of this.
A young boy was alone in the camp and went around asking for meat to eat, but was refused by everyone in the camp. At length, two uncles of the boy returned and found the boy starving. Furious with the selfishness of the other people, they conjured up a great wind and killed them all. The rocks scattered about the country at Walu are the Dreaming presence in the landscape of all these people the uncles killed with the wind.
