About Mamungari'nya
Tjukurpa mamu ngaranya ngauuku tjanmu tjutaku ngura nyangatja ngayuku ngunytju tjutangku munu kuntilingku ngayuku kulypaipangku kulu.

This is the story of many mamungari'nya. This is also my grandfather's country. This is also my mother, aunty and uncles and sisters country.

As Manyitjanu describes the country: "This is Mamungari’nya. The place Mamungari’nya is a long way away. It is over the other side of the sand dunes past Tipilnga. The place where many white trees are growing, many white marble gums. The place where women came turned into the white marble gums on the sand dune south of Watarru; this is a tjukurpa story.
So this is Mamungari’nya where lots of little gum saplings and emu bush grow. This is a place of claypans.’ This is a women's site south west of Watarru.
