Mina Mina Jukurrpa

Mina Mina Dreaming - Karlangu

by Artist
Betsy Napangardi Lewis

The country associated with this Jukurrpa is Mina Mina, a place far to the west of Yuendumu which is significant to Napangard/Napanangka women and Japangardi/Japanangka men.  

All of them are the custodians of the Jukurrpa that created
the area. The Jukurrpa story tells of the journey of a group
of women all ages who travelled to the east gathering food, collecting “ngalyipi”(snake vine) and performing 
ceremonies as they travelled. 

The women began their journey at at Minia Mina where “karlangu” (digging sticks) emerged from the ground.

 Taking these implements the women travelled east creating Janyinki and other sites.  Their journey took them far to the east beyond the boundaries of Walpiri country.

 The motif in this painting are the Karlangu (digging sticks) which rose up out of the ground at Mina Mina.  The women used them to collect bush tucker on their travels.
