About

Kani's family were living at Kanpi when she was born in Alice Spring hospital in 1981. Patricia went to school at Murputja the school for Kanpi and Nyapari and later completed her high schooling at Wiltja in Adelaide. Her mother's place is Kanpi and her fathers country is Yalata. Patricia believes that cultural knowledge is very important to pass on to the younger generation just as she has learned from her mother Kay Baker and her grandfather Jimmy Baker.
