Two sky spirits who are ill-disposed toward man. Their bodies are covered with fine white down, and instead of arms they have knives. They are always anxious to come down and kill and eat some people, but are constantly prevented from doing so by a friendly spirit called Ulurkura, who lives in the woods and watches for the coming of the Mundagadji and stops them.

When a man dies the Mundagadji can always be heard singing up in the sky, and all three spirits can be seen by the medicine men. Cp. Minungara.
