Morning Star poles are made by only a small handful of highly initiated people. The poles are associated with stories of the spirits on their journey from this world into the eternal spiritual resting place in the sky. The various types of poles, and their individual stories, link clans and areas of land associated with the travels of the Djankawu, the creation ancestors of all people of the Dhuwa Moiety. The Morning Star(Venus) is the resting place of all Dhuwa souls.
