This Karnta Jukurrpa (Women's Dreaming) comes from Purrpalala north-west of Yuendumu. Women and men travelled west from here to Yanjirlpiri for ‘kurdiji’ (initiation ceremonies). Women danced all the way west with ‘witi’ poles, which ceremonial poles made from the branches of the river red gum tree. The women were dancing for the initiation of their young men.
The Jukurrpa, designs and country shown in this painting are owned by Napangardi/Napanangka women and Japanangka/Japangardi men.
