Dagum, Fog dreaming sites are located on Ngen’giwumirri country between Peppimenarti and Nauiyu. They are small springs and holes in the ground where steam or fog come off the warm water below. They occur on the edge of floodplains and are surrounded by Spring Pandanus, (yerrgi), and Pink Apple Trees, (yerrmanmanba). The fog wafts around these trees and is conspicuous during the cold weather of the mid dry season, especially in the cool of the early morning.


These sites have special spiritual significance for Ngen’giwumirri people, especially for Marita as it was one of her deceased grandmother’s dreamings, and they are found on her traditional country.


This image shows the warm water springs and holes that the fog comes from, it captures the movement of the fog and the spiritual danger associated with coming into physical contact with the fog.
