Jukurrpa Dreamtime Stories of Yuendumu

Artist: Polly Anne Napangardi Dixon

Story: Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Mina Mina Dreaming) - Ngalyipi

This ‘Jukurrpa’ (Dreaming) comes from Mina Mina, a very important women’s Dreaming site far to the west of Yuendumu near Lake Mackay and the WA border. The ‘kirda’ (owners) of this Dreaming are Napangardi/Napanangka women and Japangardi/Japanangka men; the area is sacred to Napangardi and Napanangka women. There are a number of ‘mulju’ (water soakages) and a ‘maluri’ (clay pan) at Mina Mina. In the Dreamtime, ancestral women danced at Mina Mina and ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks) rose up out of the ground. The women collected the digging sticks and then travelled on to the east, dancing, digging for bush tucker, collecting ‘ngalyipi’ (snake vine [Tinospora smilacina]), and creating many places as they went. ‘Ngalyipi’ is a rope-like creeper that grows up the trunks and limbs of trees, including ‘kurrkara’ (desert oak [Allocasuarina decaisneana]). It is used as a ceremonial wrap and as a strap to carry ‘parraja’ (coolamons) and ‘ngami’ (water carriers). 

Royalties from the Jukurrpa Face Mask Collection go directly back to the aboriginal artists that created them and support one of Australia's longest standing 100% Aboriginally owned and run art centres to continue to support its artists and produce works that encapsulate timeless tales of survival of one of the worlds harshest landscapes and climates.
