Naru

"This is where they make me man Spider. We been walking around but that boys' country now."

This is Spider's landscape, the country where he belongs; it has an abundance of mayi (bush tucker) among the tali (sand dunes). Naru is the place where Wati Kutjarra men stopped in the Dreamtime, and it is the site where Spider was initiated into manhood.
