Warabunbun or Wepa Mokoy inhabits the country to the west of Milingimbi named Gamurru-Guyurra. This mokoy looks after the country, it is a good spirit. A younger Warrabunbun has a broken leg, as he was speared when attempting to protect his land from invaders. Wepa has white dots because when he rises from the earth, he is covered in whatharr (white clay). This body paint connects him to the Warra Warra clan. He is carrying his angadjadjiya (fish trap), gara (hunting spear) and a mangal (spear thrower). The vine depicted is the yukuwa (bush yam), which relates to the Yirritja moiety.
