In the mythology of the Aboriginal people of south-eastern Australia, Gnowee is a Solar Goddess whose torch is the Sun. She was once a woman who lived upon the earth at a time when it was eternally dark, and people could only move about with the aid of bark torches. One day she left her little boy sleeping while she went out to dig for yams and became lost. She still wanders the sky to this day, lighting the whole world with her torch as she continues to search for her lost son.
