Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Mina Mina Dreaming) Janyinki
This painting depicts Jukurrpa (Dreaming) from Mina Mina, a very important womens Dreaming site far to the west of Yuendumu near Lake Mackay and the WA border. The kirda (owners) of this Dreaming are Napangardi/Napanangka women and Japangardi/Japanangka men; the area is sacred to Napangardi and Napanangka women. In the Dreamtime, ancestral women danced at Mina Mina and karlangu (digging sticks) rose up out of the ground. The women collected the digging sticks and then travelled on to the east, dancing, digging for bush tucker, collecting ngalyipi (snake vine [Tinospora smilacina]), and creating many places as they went.
