Minyma Tjukurrpa Canvas Project Kintore

Minyma Tjukurrpa is the Pintupi term for womens law or story. When the older women of Kintore saw members of their immediate family painting at the Ikuntji Womens Centre at Haasts Bluff they instigated a painting project which was to become known by that name. These same women went on to paint for Papunya Tula and are now represented in public galleries nationally and internationally. This article documents the history of the Ikuntji community, the links between the Pintupi from the Walungurru area and Haasts Bluff and the dancing and painting practices of these twenty-five senior women.
