Story: Janmarda Jukurrpa
Artist: Jill Nungarrayi Watson
‘Janmarda’ (Bush Onion) are small bulbs found in the soft soils on the banks of sandy creeks. One of the sites for this dreaming story is Purrupurru, near Wakurlpa to the north of Yuendumu. One day, ancestral women were collecting and cooking ‘Janmarda’ when they saw an old Jungarrayi man called Warnungurla, who had been travelling from the west. He was hiding in the bushes, watching the women wanting to make love to them. He had an enormous ‘Ngirnti’ that was long like a hose. It entered the ground and came up near the women. They were frightened of him and tried to hide. When they saw his 'Ngirnti’ they beat it with their digging sticks, killing the old man. The old man can still be seen today in the form of a large stone figure at Purrupurru.
