Dorothy Napangardi Robinson
Dorothy Napangardi Robinson was born in the bush as a Pintupi woman but brought up as a Warlpiri woman. Her Warlpiri language group is from Pikilyi near Mina Mina towards Lake Mackay in the Tanami Desert - one of the remotest areas of the Northern Territory. It is west of Yuendumu and 400km north west of Alice Springs. The Pikilyi site is considered sacred to its people. The land is contained within the boundaries of a pastoral lease. Her family and the Warlpiri people would often visit the site to maintain their dreaming and to pass their knowledge on to the younger generation.
