The Star Dreaming story of the journey of the Japaljarri and Jungarrayi men who traveled from Lajamanu to Yanjirlypirri (located west of Yuendumu), then onto Lake Mackay, near the Western Australian border.

Along the way, the me performed initiation ceremonies for young men. Women were also welcomed to dance for the initiation ceremonies.

The site depicted in this canvas is where there is a low hill and a water soakage site. The importance of this place cannot be overemphasised as young boys are brought here to be initiated from as far as Pitjanjatjara Country to the south, and Lajamanu to the north.
