Jukurrpa Dreamtime Stories of Yuendumu

Artist: Jeanie Napangardi Lewis

Story:  Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Mina Mina Dreaming)

The Mina Mina Jukurrpa tells the story of a group of ancestral ‘karnta’ (women) who traveled from west to east. In the Dreamtime, these ancestral women danced at Mina Mina and ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks) rose up out of the ground. They collected these digging sticks and started travelling to the east. When the women danced at Mina Mina, they created a large dust cloud that swept up the ‘walyankarna’ (snake ancestors). This dust cloud blew the ‘walyankarna’ further north to Yaturluyaturlu (near the Granites gold mine). In this way, the ‘karnta Jukurrpa’ (women’s Dreaming) and ‘ngarlkirdi Jukurrpa’ (witchetty grub Dreaming) intersect. This allowed the ancestral women to observe the witchetty grubs and learn how to best locate and cook them, which are skills that Warlpiri women still use today.

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 produce works that encapsulate timeless tales of survival of one of the worlds harshest landscapes and climates.
