Story: Mina Mina Dreaming

This painting depicts the Dreaming story of the significant Dreaming site Mina Mina, west of Yuendumumu. The story tells of ancestral women dancing on this site, which led to digging sticks rising from the ground. They travelled carrying their digging sticks over their shoulders, adorned with ‘Majardi’ (hairstring belts), white feathers and necklaces made from ‘Yinirnti’ (bean tree seeds). There are a number of different components to the Mina Mina Dreaming; artists usually choose to depict one particular aspect. In this case, Mitchell has decided to focus on depicting the women's digging sticks.
