Story:

The minyma (women) are travelling together form the sacred area of Kulkurda to the Tjurkurla area. The epic journey where the women travelled on one side and the other are known as Tingarri. These are three large rockholes at Kulkurda where the women sit down and tell stories through dance and songs. Ther are also sites here where the women can dig for water at the soaks. The arched patterns represent the sandhills of the region. As one of the elders she is a custodian of the cultural knowledge associated with this site.
