Women's ceremony begins with the women painting each other's bodies in designs relating to a particular Dreaming story in accordance with their skin name and family hierarchy. The designs are painted on the chest and shoulders using powders from ground ochre, charcoal, and ash.

The natural pigments are applied with a flat stick with padding or with fingers in linear and curved lines. The act of decorating the body transforms the individual and changes their identity. During the painting, which can take up to three hours, the women chant their Dreaming. The final part of the ceremony is when the women dance and chant.
