Redback Spider Dreaming tells a story about the punishment of a evil woman named Kalja who stole and lied to her tribe.
Baiami transformed Kalja into the redback spider to teach all that lying, stealing and being bad was not right.
He hit her on the back with his large Nulla Nulla stick which made her bleed. This is why you see the red mark on a redback spider's back as a reminder of her bad actions and that it is important to treat everyone fair, honest and to be kind.
