Winthali is a traditional Bunuba story, adapted here by Joe Willigan Ross and Stacey Bush. Greedy Old Man Crocodile (Lallanggarra) won't share his fire with the Bunuba people, but Brown Falcon (Girrganyi), with the help of the young animals comes up with a clever plan to take a fire-stick from his home at Jarrambaya. This story belongs to the Danggu people of the Fitzroy Valley.
