This is my borning place – Wingarntjirri. It is west of Tjukurla community. These are the tali and kapi, the sand dunes and rock holes, of that place. I was born in the bush. My mother, Katjarra Butler, was walking around from place to place with me getting ready. She had me at Wingarntjirri.

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