This design is based on the many native flowers that grow locally in Pukatja and through the Musgrave Ranges. When we go out to the bush, we see all the different colours from many plants growing. Flowers are important to the women and the health of the land, and much excitement is felt as they burst into life.

Desert Mob is presented annually in Mparntwe | Alice Springs on Arrernte Country.
