Art work story: Women’s Dance (Mina Mina Jukurrpa)

The original painting was created by highly esteemed Warlpiri artist, Pauline Napangardi Gallagher, and depicts an ancient Aboriginal Dreaming story about a place on the Warlpiri homelands called Mina Mina.

Mina Mina is a traditional ceremonial site for Warlpiri women from the Napangardi and Napanangka clan groups. It is located in an isolated desert area on the border of the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

The Mina Mina Jukurrpa is an important source of knowledge about Warlpiri rituals and social organisation that has been handed down from one generation to the next over the millennia.

It tells a story about a group of ‘Karnta’ (ancestral women), who travelled across the desert from west to east. In the Dreamtime, Mina Mina was a place where the women danced.

According to the ancestors’ story, when the women danced at Mina Mina, they created a large dust cloud that swept up the ‘Walyankarna’ (snake ancestors). The ‘Walyankarna’ had stopped at Mina Mina to watch the women dance.

Mina Mina is still an important site for the Warlpiri as it is where the ‘Ngalyipi’ vine is gathered.

‘Ngalyipi’ has medicinal properties and has long been used by the Warlpiri women for their sacred ceremonies and rituals.
