(7/8) It is an offence of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 to excavate, destroy, damage, conceal, or in any way alter an Aboriginal site. KGH applied for consent to do just that. Their application was denied, yet they **continued to excavate**.

(5/8) It is because of its significance to this story that the site was listed under the Aboriginal Heritage Act. Goorlabal the serpent is also a powerful figure and holder of Law for all Gija people. The black granite removed by mining company KGH is part of her tail.

(4/8) His love became the black headed snake and the stars are his promised wives. The story carries meanings about the most primary aspects of human experience and Gija law: death and mortality, love and desire, kinship and obligation.

(3/8) A man fell in love with a woman who was his mother-in-law within Gija kinship. When the elders refused to allow him his love, he cursed them and condemned humankind to mortality. This man comes back as the New Moon every month, but we die and our bodies return to the earth.
