  • Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Mina Mina Dreaming)

    Mina Mina is an extremely important ceremonial site for
    Napangardi and Napanangka women that is located
    approximately 600kms west of Yuendumu, just east of Lake
    Mackay and the WA border. The area has a ‘marluri’ (salt
    lake or claypan) that is usually dry, without water. There are
    also a number of ‘mulju’ (soakages), sandhills, and a large
    stand of ‘kurrkara’ (desert oaks [Allocasuarina
    decaisneana]). The Mina Mina Jukurrpa is an important
    source of Warlpiri ritual knowledge and social organization,
    particularly relating to the different roles performed by men
    and women.
    The ‘kirda’ (owners) of this country are Napangardi/Napanangka women and Japangardi/Japanangka men, who can depict portions of the Mina Mina Jukurrpa in their paintings. There are a number of different components of the Mina Mina Jukurrpa; artists usually choose to depict one particular aspect. These can include ‘karnta’ (women), ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks), ‘majardi’ (hairstring skirts/tassels), ‘ngalyipi’ (snakevine)
