Story:  Pauline Nampijinpa Singleton. This parcular site of the Yankirri Jukurrpa, (emu Dreaming [Dromaius ovaehollandiae]) is at garlikurlangu, north of Yuendumu. The ‘yankirri’ travelled to the rockhole at Ngarlikurlangu to find water. This Jukurrpa story belongs to Jangala/Jampijinpa men and Nangala/Nampijinpa women. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings tradional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. Emus are usually represented by their ‘wirliya’ (footprints), arrow-like shapes that show them walking around Ngarlikurlangu yakajirri’ (bush raisin [Solanum centrale]). In the me of the Jukurrpa there was a fight at Ngarlikiurlangu between a ‘yankirri’ ancestor and Wardilyka (Australian bustard [Ardeots australis]) ancestors over sharing the ‘yakajirri’. There is also a dance for this Jukurrpa that is performed during initation ceremonies.
