Area

Kuun / Tjukurla, WA

Katjara Butler was born in 1946 at a waterhole site called Kuun, which is also the Pintupi word for yellow ochre. Kuun is located quite close to Tjukurla, and paints stories assocaied with this area of Western Australia, with particular focus on the Kuurrmankutj community.

Katjara lived a traditional, nomadic life with her parents, Lilyiwara Tjungarrayi (father), and Mangkatji Nangala (mother), as well as her siblings Nguya Napaltjarri (sister), and Peter Tjanpaltjarri (younger brother). It wasn’t until 1966 that the family was brought into the Papunya settlement from the desert. She then married Anatjari Tjakamarra, who was one of the founding painters of the Papunya Tula movement.
