Story: Helicopter has painted some of his traditional country, which is located far to the south west of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is centred around Jupiter Well and is dominated by tali or sand hills. "These lines made by wind are talis (sand hills). Kurli, good wind, brings warm weather. Not rubbish wind, yalta (cold wind), maybe kill babies and old people. Lovely time of year, birds everywhere, everything growing, boys and girls running amok. This soak, living water, we call yinta, really full up when rains come. These white stones, mawuntu, special place; ceremony place."
