Story: Jaganpa Dreaming
‘Janganpa’ (Brushtail Possums) are nocturnal animals that often nest in hollows of white gum trees. A common story is about a Janganpa ancestor who travelled all over Warlpiri lands visiting various sites during the time of the Dreamtime. This included one site called 'Jangankurlangu' meaning 'belonging to possum.' There is an important initiation ceremony for young men which involves the Janganpa Dreaming. These possums were once found throughout Warlpiri and neighbouring country but have become extinct in recent years due to the introduction of feral animals.
Will leave the warehouse within 2 weeks.
