Description:
The informants tell part of the story behind Injalarrku, the Mermaid Song. It forms part of the Mardayin cultural complex, and is closely linked to the well-known story of Lumaluma. Lumaluma was a whale who was killed because he ate too much. His wives searched for him everyhwere in vain. One of Lumaluma's wives was pregnant, and the mermaids, from which Injalarrku takes its name, are her daughters. David Goodness tells the story first in Mawng. This is followed by an explanation in English by Ronald Lamilami and David Goodness.
