About Winpa
Winpa is jila (living water) located near the Percival Lakes in the Great Sandy Desert in WA. It is an important gathering of the Yulparija and neighbouring groups. they would gather for rain making cerimonial ceremonies.
Lydai walked all around this country with her family until the early 1970's when severe drought caused her people to walk out.. They left their traditional country and headed to Le Grange Mission, now Bidyadanga community on the coast south of Broome.
