Kunamata, this is my ngura (homeland). There is karu pulka (big creek) that runs from the apu (rocky hills). Itjulu is on the other side and apu tjuta (rocky hills) everywhere with different punu (trees). The snake is panakura (desert death adder). Each day he ventures out to the cave and paint sacred designs on the cave walls, before returning home again. His home is in the sand hills close to Kunamata.
