This particular work, 'The Tingari Cycle', represents an aspect of the Tingari creation event. The ancestral Tingari beings are said  to have travelled over vast stretches of the country, performing rituals and creating and shaping particular sites.  The Tingari Men were usually followed by Tingari Women and accompanied by novices and  their travels and adventures are enshrined in a number of song cycles.  These creation stories form part of the teachings of post initiatory youths at the same time providing the basis for contemporary customs.  Since events associated with the Tingari Cycle are of a secret nature, no further details are given.
