Nita Ferguson was born in the bush near Kulgera. She spent her childhood with her family on Erldunda, Kulgera and Henberry Stations. Nita returned to Titjikala in 1964 and used to watch her mother carving artifacts and punu (wood). When finished they would catch the Old Ghan train into Alice Springs and sell the artifacts to tourists around the Mission Block shop.
