The Artwork Story
Ngapa Jukuurpa – Mikanji (Desert Country Dreaming)
The country associated with this Dreaming story is Mikanji, a watercourse located on the homelands of the Warlpiri Aboriginal People from the remote Tanami Desert region in Central Australia. The watercourse is a usually dry creek bed but after the annual rains, soakages are formed in the creek bed. The soakages are an important source of water during the long dry season in the desert.
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.
