This particular site of Yankirri Jukurrpa, (emu dreaming) is at Ngarlikurlangu, north of Yuendumu. The ‘yankirri’ travelled to the rockhole at Ngarlikurlangu to find water. This Jukurrpa (Dreaming) story belongs to Jangala/Jampijinpa men and Nagala/Nampijnpa women. In Warlpiri paintings traditional 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 eating ‘yakajirri’ (bush raisin). In the time of the Jukurrpa there was a fight at Ngarlikiurlangu between a ‘yankirri’ ancestor and Wardilyka (Australian bustard) ancestors over sharing the ‘yakajirri’. There is also a dance for this Jukurrpa that is performed during ceremonies.
