Mitjili painted her father's Country: the pristine sandhills, bushes and trees of Uwalki. Uwalki country is about 200km north of Uluru, near Kintore, situated in the Gibson Desert. It is rich in bush food and native grass seeds for bush damper, as well as animals such as bush turkeys and kangaroos.

Mitjili was a custodian of the Spear Dreaming (Kulata Tjurrkupa) and paints the elements of her family’s Dreaming that only women are allowed to depict. She paints the root system, landscape and location of the plant (Watiya Tjuta) that are used by the men to make spears and other wooden objects. It is very important that elements of the Dreaming (Tjukurrpa) are kept separate for men and women as their Men’s and Women’s Business is a sacred tradition.
