Jakayu was born near Pitu, east of Well 25, and grew up around Kunawarritji, Rarrki and Nyilangkurr, where her father died. In 1963, with her husband and extended family, she met the surveyor Len Beadell, who was grading roads for the Woomera rocket range. This meeting prompted them to join their relatives who were living at Jigalong mission. In 1982 Jakayu moved to Punmu community, where she lives today with her children and grandchildren.

Artwork Story: Wantili is significant because this is where Kartujarra, Manyjilyjarra, Putujarra and Warnman people all come together. It is a jurnu (soak) and a claypan, where Jukurrpa women threw seeds. Well 25 is located close to Wantili at Yilkarr, but because of the site’s significance this well is usually referred to as Wantili.

I was about 25 years of age when I went to Kunawarritji for first time for meeting. And I didn’t get homesick or lonely. Probably because I feel right at home.
May was born at old Jigalong. She is the sister of Clifford and Sarah Brooks, and her father is Rover Thomas’s older brother. May belongs to Kunawarritji (Well 33) on her father’s side and, on her mother’s, to Rarrki (Well 27).
