This paintings depicts the Maliki Jukurrpa (Domestic Dog Dreaming) from a site called Pindara, south-west of Yuendumu and near to a place called Ngama (smake cave). Traditionally, Aboriginal people in central Australia keeps dogs as domestic pats and also for hunting.

Families in Yuendumu tend to own many dogs. They are good 'marlpa' (company). Many people think of their dogs as 'warlalja' (family). Dogs in Yuendumu like to follow their owners around whenever they can.

Some people use their dogs to help them hunt 'marlu' (kangaroo) and 'wardapi' (goanna), among other animals. People also have dogs to protect themselves from intruders, monsters, and other things that might try to hurt them and their family. Many monsters are invisible to 'yapa' (Aboriginal people). However, dogs are able to see and smell them. Dogs will warn 'yapa' about them or steer them away from the monsters, and thereby keep them safe.
