Mina Mina Ngalyipi Jukurrpa

by artist
Paddy Japanangka 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 ceromonies 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 “nagalyipi” vine grows up the trunks and limbs of the “kurrkara” desert oak trees.  “Ngalyipi” is a sacred vine to Napangardi and  Napanangka women that has many uses.

It can be used as a cermonial wrap, as a strap to carry “parrajas” (wooden bowls) that are laden with  bush tucker and as a tourniquet for headaches.
