Design Story: Minyma Kutjara (Two Women)
This story is of two women camping. They have digging sticks looking for bush food. They are travelling on foot around Australia – through sand hills and mountains looking for mai (food). They were travelling from Western Australia to Wamitja (Birthday Creek), close to Ernabella. When the ladies get to Wamitja they camp there the night. In the morning they see a man by himself sleeping on the top of a mountain. The ladies hit the man and roll him to a cave and hide his body. They keep travelling towards Ayers Rock.Nami says this is her mother’s story – a very big story. Nami only knows parts of the story.
