Namorrorddo (a profane spirit) by Ruth Bindeidbal

Write a review

Namorrorddo is a profane spirit sometimes called a 'bad angel' in Aboriginal English.  

The Namorrorddo is a yirridjdja moiety being associated with the Yabbadurruwa regional cult ceremony.  

Namorrorddo sits upon a rock and is usually painted with long claw like hands and feet. Sometimes spurs protrude from the elbows somewhat like those of a flying fox. Namorrorddo carries light, which emanates from his head. The shooting stars seen at night are Namorrorddo travelling across the night sky.
