An old man, a healer, travelled our homelands during his lifetime. He was called upon to help Kokoberrin families. As he travelled, magic rocks would follow him, leaving a winding track on the ground charting his journey. People were always trying to take those magic rocks away from that medicine man. When that old fella passed away the rocks were buried beside him but someone took them and we are still looking for them today.
