AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is an account of how Mrs Olive Pink (1884-1975) ... was taken on a vine stretcher to Puyurru and then Yumurrpa, after she became seriously ill while living at Pirdi-pirdi (Thompson's Rockhole) with a group of Warlpiri people ... Ted Egan Jangala has used repetition to emphasize the sustained effort involved in travelling considerable distances with the sick woman, and also the way in which the sick are given constant support and personal attention ... Although this is not a jukurrpa story, it is now considered to belong to the Jangala-Jampijinpa men and women of one particular family.'
