The name given to the spirit which is supposed to enter a woman and be born in human form. To cause a child to enter a woman a Kaitish man will take a tjurunga and carry it to a spot at which there is a special stone called kwerka-punga (child-stone), which he rubs with the tjurunga, at the same time asking the kurinah to go straight into the woman.
