Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Mina Mina Dreaming)

Mina Mina is an extremely important ceremonial site for
Napangardi and Napanangka women that is located
approximately 600kms west of Yuendumu, just east of Lake
Mackay and the WA border. The area has a ‘marluri’ (salt
lake or claypan) that is usually dry, without water. There are
also a number of ‘mulju’ (soakages), sandhills, and a large
stand of ‘kurrkara’ (desert oaks [Allocasuarina
decaisneana]). The Mina Mina Jukurrpa is an important
source of Warlpiri ritual knowledge and social organization,
particularly relating to the different roles performed by men
and women.
The ‘kirda’ (owners) of this country are
Napangardi/Napanangka women and
Japangardi/Japanangka men, who can depict portions of the
Mina Mina Jukurrpa in their paintings. There are a number
of different components of the Mina Mina Jukurrpa; artists
usually choose to depict one particular aspect. These can
include ‘karnta’ (women), ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks),
‘majardi’ (hairstring skirts/tassels), ‘ngalyipi’ (snakevine)
