Contemporary Indigenous Artist Kampaya Girgirbais from the Great Sandy Desert in the Pilbara Western Australia. Kunawarritji (Canning Stock Route Well 33) is her country.
“When I was a young girl, I walked everywhere, travelling along the Canning Stock Route. I walked north and west, around Wana warla (lake). I grew up around there, going right around that Country and all the way back to Kunawarritji. But once I became a woman I stopped travelling and just stayed around Kunawarritji. [At] Kunawarritji, all the Minyipuru (Jakulyukulyu, Seven Sisters) mima (women) there."
