Debra Nangala McDonald

Language: Pintupi

Country: Haasts Bluff

Debra  is the granddaughter of the late Shorty Lungkata Tjungurrayi who was a Pintubi man from Lake MacDonald in the Gibson Desert, Central Australia. In 1948 he moved to Haasts Bluff and Papunya, and both Debra and Shorty's stories refer to his country of Lake MacDonald. Debra was married to the nephew of Turkey Tolson and son of the female artist Mitjili. The big circle is the entrance to the Goanna’s home. Goanna digs tunnels under the ground and the small circles are where the Goanna Eggs are laid. The tracks that run from nest to nest are the Aboriginal People following the tunnels to get to the Goanna’s Eggs, this is good bush tucker!
