Mimi is long thin spirits who live in the cracks or caves in the rock. The Mimi rarely venture out from their homes as their thin limbs are in danger of breaking in the winds [1].
The Mimi is also seen as the entity that taught the aboriginal people to paint, hunt, and cook. They are seen as mischievous but generally harmless [2].
