Story: The artist represents the Desert Oak Dreaming from Mina Mina. Ancestral Napanangka and Napangrdi women collect jintiparnta at Kanakarlangu, a place also known as Mina Mina. Ancestral women travelled from here,north through Janyinki and other places, and then east to Alcoota country. Kurrkara -desert oak is the shade tree where the women sat down to rest. Mina Mina has a couple of mulji water soakages and a claypan where the women danced and performed ceremonies.As a result Kuturu ceremonial digging sticks rose out of the ground and these women carried these with them on their long journey east, dancing and singing the whole way, with no sleep, and collecting many types of bush tucker including ngalyipi-snake vine.
