Biography Ali Miller Mungatopi
Alie Miller was one of five brothers who were leading artists and ceremonial performers; the brothers included ‘King’ Larry, Laurie One-Eye Nelson and Deaf Tommy Mungatopi. Alie was married to another prominent Tiwi artist of their generation, Polly Miller Poinomaju Mungatopi (c.1912-1989).
Husband and wife were prolific artists and became close friends with Sandra Le Brun Holmes who collected much of their art. The relationship was so close that Sandra Holmes was permitted to record the pukumani ceremony held for Alie Miller in August 1968 at Milikapiti on Melville Island, which she published in Holmes, S. Le Brun, The Goddess and the Moon Man: The Sacred Art of the Tiwi Aborigines, Sydney: Craftsman House, 1995, pp.91-99.
