About this product
The Mina Mina Jukurrpa tells the story of a group of ancestral ‘karnta’ (women) who travelled 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.
Mina Mina is a ceremonial site for Napangardi and Napanangka women located 600km west of Yuendumu, just east of Lake Mackay and the WA border. The area has a ‘maluri’ (salt lake) that is usually dry.
In contemporary Walpiri paintings, traditional iconography can be used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites, and other elements. The Mina Mina Jukurrpa is an important source of Walpiri ritual knowledge and social organization, particularly relating to the different roles performed by men and women.
