In the Dreamtime there are two parts to the Pencil Yam Story which belong to two different countries. Two different seeds were borne that created two different species of pencil yam; one called Atnwelarr which belongs to Alhalkere and Atnangkere countries, and the other called Arlatyeye which belongs to Eileen’s country. Eileen uses dotwork in her paintings to portray the seeds of Arlatyeye calledkame. The Arlatyeye itself is a small, long tubular yam (swollen root) belonging to a trailing herb or creeper that often covers large areas of ground with bright green leaves and yellow flowers.
