Rosina Napurrurla White

 

Rosina Napurrurla White is a Warlpiri artist who paints with the world acclaimed Warlukurlangu Artists. Established over 30 years ago in the remote Aboriginal community of Yuendumu in the Tanami Desert region of Central Australia, Warlukurlangu has long been a stronghold for the preservation of the traditional language and culture of the Warlpiri people.  Due to the isolation of their desert homelands, the Warlpiri were among some of the last Aboriginal people in Australia to make contact with Europeans. The Warlpiri people’s connection to their culture is as strong now as it was when their ancestors first walked on their country tens of thousands of years ago. Rosina’s artwork design depicts a traditional Water Dreaming story, which has been handed down to her through many generations of her Warlpiri ancestors over the millennia.
