Auntie Margaret Iselin told me that Adder Rock’s traditional name is Mulmakul meaning death adder and that Adder Rock was place of the death adder.
She also said to me that the old people knew it as a “place of healing” as they would lay upon the hot rocks. Mulmakul captures winter’s gabura biyigi and and the last hours of summers setting biyigi. No matter what season ‘jara’ captures ‘budlubara’ here, Mulmakul; yanggabara.
