Kurrkara Jukurrpa

by Artist
Judy Napangardi Watson

Napanangka and Napangardi women are collecting Jintiparnta (desert truffle) at Kanakarlangu.  The area is also called Mina Mina. 

Ancestoral women travelled from here, north through Janyinki and other places then east to Alcoota country.  Kurrkara (dogweed tree) is the shade tree where women sit down to rest. 

Mina Mina is a ceremonial place belonging to Japanangka, Japangardi men and Napanangka, Napangardi women, their associated land continues far to the west of Yuendumu in the sandhill country. 

There are a number of mulju (water soakages) at Mina Mina.  A clay pan exists at Mina Mina and it is here that the women danced and performed ceremonies.  As a result digging sticks rose up out of the ground and it is these implements that the women carried with them on their long journey east.  The women danced and sang the whole way, with no sleep.  The women collected many other types of bush tucker including ngalyipi (snake vine) and yakajirri (bush raison).
