About Ngayuku Ngura: Walytjitjata - My Country: Walytjitjata
Imitjala Curley is closely connected with Walytjitjata, her mother, Puni Puni's country. It is a small homeland just over the NT border about 46km north of Kalka
Curley has said that this is part of the Minyma kututja Story of Walytjitjata
Minyma Kututja and her husband had many children. They travelled to Umutju (east of Walytjitjata). The oldest boy Wantama was homesick for their birth place, Kanpini, near Waltjitjata. They told their mother , "We're going back home with our brother." the mother sang a song to send them away. At Umutju they turned into stone and are still there today.
