Tali at Kungkayunti
This painting shows the bird’s-eye view of the tali tali (sandhills) at Kungkayunti (Brown’s Bore). This is the Country of Joe Tjakamarra Multa, the father of Lisa Multa. The tali tali are a short walk from where the family lived. Lisa remembers walking up the tali tali with her sister, Agnes Multa, who was the same age as her. When Lisa got married she brought her partner to see those tali tali. From the tali tali, a 360-degree view can be seen of the surrounding Country. The area is abundant with bush tucker, especially bush tomatoes and bush banana. Kungkayunti is an important place for the travelling Tjukurrpa of the ancestral women who travelled 600 kilometres from Ntaria (Hermannsburg) to Kintore, past Kulpitarra Outstation to attend to women’s business. Kungkayunti is the place where the women first camped. On their long journey, the women stopped at Kunkayunti (Brown’s Bore) to camp, rest, eat and dance. When the women reached their destination, they danced, shared their stories and renewed their law. Those women turned into stone and can be seen today. Annual events continue today to strengthen this Tjukurrpa.
