Lajamanu ArtJudy Martin – Kangaroo and Mala Dreaming
This dreaming tells about the small kangaroo that comes out at night searching for food. The mala live in holes in the open desert. The kangaroos hop around our country. They know all the trees, creeks and water holes.
Napangardi was born on her lands around 1939. These were the lands of her father and grandfathers. Her other Dreaming sites are Minamina near Lake Mackay. Her father Japanangka passed away shortly after she was born. He passed away in his lands. Her Mother, Lorna Fencer Napurrurla or Yulyurlu, her real name, raised Judy in the bush. She spent her formative years in the bush until some white people rounded the family up against their will and took them to Yuendumu. Judy thinks the problem was the gold at the site now called the Granites. Many of the family ended up addicted to alcohol in Alice Springs. Only Judy never drank. Judy had 8 brothers and sisters and 3 daughters. Of all her brothers and sisters she has six surviving grandchildren.
