The artists are famous for their gloriously colourful acrylic paintings that depict stories of the country around Yuendumu and Nyirripi, the Dreamtime and their ancestors.

Story: Yankirri Dreaming

The particular site of this Emu Dreaming story is at Ngarkilirlangu, north of Yuendumu. The story tells of an emu who travelled to the rockhole at Ngarkilirlangu to find water. In this painting, the emu is represented by its footprints - arrow like shapes - that show it walking around Ngarkilirlangu eating 'Yankirri' (bush raisin).
