I saw whitefellas first time in Parnngurr. We were climbing up the hills [to get away].

Bugai was born at Balfour Downs and grew up around Kartarru (Well 24), Wantili (Well 25), Tiwa (Well 26) and Wuranu (Well 29). She travelled around Karlamilyi with her husband, and later with drovers on the stock route. In 1963 her family met surveyor Len Beadell, who was grading roads. They were taken to Jigalong.

Wantili (Well 25) to Wuranu (Well 29)

Artist(s): Jartarr Lilly Long; Mantyil May Brooks; Jiwara Sarah Brooks

Date created: 2007
Art Centre(s): Martumili Artists
Size: 152x76
Medium: acrylic on linen

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).
