About Minyma Malinlunya
This is the country for Malilu. She is a creation being from the Tjukurpa (Dreamtime). Minyma Malilu nyianyi wana ngka munu piti (the woman Malilu is sitting with her digging stick and collecting bowl). She has been dancing, performing Inma important ceremonial dancing for this country and she has left her dancing tracks behind the sand. Malilu was a crippled woman and her two daughters had run off to get married, leaving her to fend for herself. It was very hard for her to collect bush foods and water because she had to drag her legs as she walked. Through much efforts she collected kampurarpa, wiriny-wirinypa, tawalpa munu mai kutjupa-kutjupa (desert raisins, bush tomatoes, berries and many different kinds of wild foods).
