About Malara:Wanampi Tjukurpa
Malara is the place of the Water Serpent Dreaming. Taylor was born at this important site of the Wanampi Tjukurpa, the Rainbow Serpent or water snake Dreaming. The Malara Wanampi is his Tjukurpa totemic ancestor. Taylor is Nguraritja, a traditional custodian of this tjukurpa. There were many water holes that the Wanapmi travelled through.

“That Wanampi came from Malara. He went to Kunytjanu near Pipalyatjara
From Kunytjanu that Wanampi kept walking, walking. He came to Tjuntun (kutjupa -different to Tjuntun atFregon.) near Watarru.
He threw one spear and made that rock hole. He went right in that rock hole and then he travelled back to Malara."
