Tjunkiya, her sister Wintjiya and their mother Mitjili Napurrula, participated in the women's camp near Haasts Bluff  in 1994 that initiated painting amongst the Pintupi women. Their individual paintings generally depict designs associated with important rockhole sites situated in sandhill country, east of Mt. Webb in Western Australia.  This painting depicts the travels of a group of women to Mulpurringa and Umari, north-west of the Kintore Community. The four oblong shapes represent digging sticks and the 'U' shapes are the women.  At each of the sites visited the women sang the songs and performed the dances associated with the area.
