star-of-heavenDilga is the Australian Aboriginal Goddess of fertility. Two of her sons, the Bagadjimbiri, were creator Gods who were born as dingos. When they took human form, they got into an argument with Ngariman, a cat-man. He found their laughter particularly irritating, and lured the brothers to his underground cave, where he killed them. Dilga, hearing of the murders, used her breast milk to form a stream that ran down to Ngariman’s cave and drowned him. The Bagadjimbiri were revived by Dilga’s milk. They turned into clouds and went to live in the sky.
