Chapter 53, Kunapipi Summary and Analysis

Kunapipi is the First Mother. Reverence for Kunapipi still exists today in the Arnhemland area of north-central Australia. Those who honor her consider themselves to be her descendants. It is with Kunapipi that half of the spirit resides while the other roams the other within the human body. Once a lifetime, a ritual is performed in which an initiate climbs into Kunapipi's "womb" to make contact with the other half of his soul and to hear the voice of the beloved Kunapipi. It is believed that the soul halves will reunite after death and Kunapipi will send one half back to the earth to live again.
