Biography  
Walangkura Napanangka


Walangkura Napanangka (Pirrmangka's sister) was born in 1946 at Tjiturulnga, west of Walungurru (Kintore) in the far west of the Northern Territory.

Her parents were Inyuwa Nampitjinpa and Tutuma Tjapangati, who were also artists.  Her sister Pirrmangka Napanangka (now deceased) was also a well known artist (see example of her work on our Web site).

Her family was among a group of Pintupi people who made their way to the Ikuntji settlement (Haasts Bluff) in 1956.  They walked hundreds of kilometers from west of the salt lake of Karrkurutinjinya (Lake Macdonald) to gain access to the food and water at the settlement. The family returned to their home country community of Walungurru (Kintore) in 1981.
