In the Dreamtime there are two parts to the Kame story, one that belongs to Alhalkere and Atnangkere countries, and the other that belongs to Arnumarra country.

Two different seeds were born that created two different species of Pencil Yam, one called Atnwelarr which belongs to Judy’s country, and the other called Arlatyeye which belongs to Arnumarra country.
