Language: 
Wangkatjungka
Country: 
Kurtal, Great Sandy Desert

I was born at a jila [permanent waterhole] called Kurtal. Mum took me to Balgo and then to Warnku. I was living there when my sister Wagajia took me to Sturt Creek and then back to Warnku. From there we walked to Louisa Downs Station with my family. I spent time at Bohemia Downs and Christmas Creek Stations. I used to milk the goats at Bohemia Downs Station. I was a young girl without milk, I had not yet had children when I first went there.
 
When I paint, I paint Kurtal. I paint one country. I can’t paint other country. I have two brothers and two sisters who belong to this jila.
