by Micha F. Lindemans
The totemic ancestor of the Kamilaroi tribe of New South Wales. An ancient sky god and 'father of all things', he was master of life and death -- the archetypal medicine-man. He answered invocations for rain, while his favourite wife, Birrahgnooloo, sent floods on request. Baiame also invented the stone fish trap.
