Abstract:

In the Dreamtime, Kwork Kwork, the green frog was Mother of the Monsoon & Mother of the Waters. During a drought a young man threatened to kill her unless she brought rain. Kwork Kwork called on the spirits, and produced a great flood to drown the man. The biggest frog in the world, Tiddilik saved the man by drinking up the flood, leaving the earth in drought again. The animals solved the drought problem by making Tiddilik laugh - as he laughed all the water came out to create the rivers and lakes. Any man who kills a green frog, will himself die. The story teaches man to live with nature and accept nature. Suggested audience: primary, intermediate.
