Legend of the Bat
Bonelya the Bat served men together. He
made man first without a beard and woman
with a beard - Noureli did not like this
and ordered it to be otherwise. The Bat
slept in a tree and people were ordered
not to go near the tree. A woman gathering
sticks struck the tree with them - and the
Bat flew out. Noureli said:
Pūkemalemba pina paitŭnba
die you bone whiten
pina būlga būlgarū
bone dust dust

Bat a
totem
It seems that the Bat is a totem
of Kilpara for Bulmer's friend
Nan-it-dro [was - crossed out] had both the
names Bonellya- Kilpara.
