ABORIGINAL DREAM TIME STORY
Mina Mina Jukurrpa
Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Dreaming) — is associated with Mina Mina lands to the far west of Yuendumu. These lands are significant to the Napangardi/Napanangka women and Japangardi/Japanangka men. These Dreaming tells of the journey of a group of women travelling to the east gathering food, collecting snake vine and performing ceremonies as they travel.
The ancient iconography depicted represents the journey of ancestral women, dancing, digging for food and collecting snakevine.
