Minyma Kutjara (Two Sisters) is one of the most important women’s creation stories of the Western and Southern deserts and a special story for Irrunytju. It tells the story of the difficult journey of two sisters who travelled throughout these vaste lands.

„This is my grandmother’s country, Ngayan over that way past Irrunytju. Those two ladies came this way.

The older sister was teaching the younger sister but she was tired and wanted to go home but the older sister told her they must keep travelling. As they travelled they danced all the way.“
