this is the story of the elder sister going a long way to get her younger sister and bring her back.  they went through many places on the way, but i will only talk about a short bit of their journey at wingellina. two women. they both came up from up high and they stayed awhile. they both could see that docker river was close, these two women. as as they were sitting there they performed ceremony, imma. after this they both threw away their weapons, they threw them away. their head-rings, they threw away their head-rings. then they got up and left. they went to another place, a hollow called kantarangkutjara, in the middle there and then they travelled on to the docker river. the story of their travels after docker river belongs to the docker river people and others in distant country. my part of the story is short.

this original artwork has been hand painted by aboriginal artists at the ernabella arts centre. ernabella arts centre is a place where elders, young women and men practice there art, in order to sustain, support and promote cultural heritage and improve the lifestyle of their communities members.
