The artist represents her main subject: the Desert Oak Dreaming from Mina Mina.
Ancestral Napanangka and Napangardi women are shown collecting Jintiparnta (Elderia arenivaga) at Kanakarlangu, a place also known as Mina Mina. Ancestral women travelled from here, north through Janyinki and other places and then east to Alcoota country.
Kurrkara (Desert Oak) is the shade tree where women sat down to rest. Mina Mina is a ceremonial place belonging to Japanangka and Japangardi men and Napanangka and Napangardi women: their associated country continues far to the west of Yuendumu to the sandhill country.
Mina Mina has a couple of mulju (water soakages) and a claypan, where the women danced and performed ceremonies. As a result kuturu (digging sticks) rose out of the ground and it is these implements that the women carried with them on their long journey east.
The women danced and sang the whole way, with no sleep, and collected many other types of bush tucker, including ngalyipi (snake vine) and yakajirri (bush sultana).
