About

My country is Japirnka, I was born and grew up there. My brother Kurrapa, Peter Skipper was born there too. My name Walka comes from this place. I was born right there in the middle of that jila (waterhole). I am the oldest of my family left now. I walked all around this country with my grandmother until I found my promised husband. i had my first child Amy before I came out from the desert.
