"This is the country where I grew up and it is called Mulpulya. When I was a young child my family and I would walk from rockhole to rockhole."

Myrtle is a senior Spinifex woman who was born at a Kanpa deep within Spinifex Country. At Kanpa there are two large rockholes with sandhills and salt country near Wilkapi and Tjawalpa (two soaks). There is a salt lake surrounded by stumpy trees and large sandhills. Mulpulya is where Myrtle's umbilical fell off as a baby therefore is greatly significant to Myrtle. Spinifex people are connected strongly to birthplace and the place where the umbilical cord comes off. Mulpula is the home of the Pitjitjarli or Scorpion story.
