This is a story that has been passed down to Meredith from her father.
Kuniya Tjukurpa -Woma Python Creation Story
This story starts from a place called Tjuntun and where the Kuniya Tjukurpa starts from. Her travels started from this place which is my families country and travelled to a place that goes by the name of Uluru.
She was travelling along her own road, and as she went she sang the country. She sang that country as she traveled and as she went she laid a number of eggs at a place about half way long. A place which is known by the name of Ngarutjara.
From Ngarutjara she went across to another place, this is called Pi Pulka and is a large rockhole. She kept travelling and went all the way up to Ala.
Once she reached Ala she said to herself, ‘Oh look, I can see Uluru from here’, and she thought about her Aune who had been living there at Uluru.
So she kept on going and soon arrived at Uluru. When she arrived she began to sing a song at a place known as Wana Wipiya Wipiya.
This is my country, this is my families country, it belongs to us. My father and my uncle gave me and my sisters all of this area and that Tjukurpa. I have all it all in my head.
