Minyma Kutjara Tjukurpa (the creation story of the two sisters).  The big sister was travelling with her younger sister back to their homeland.  The little sister was reluctant to head further and further north as she had been living with a different family near the ocean to the south.

Her sister gave her a piggyback and tried to comfort her.  She was teaching her all about the country they travelled through.  Sometimes when they stopped they performed Inma (sacred singing and dancing).  They camped at Punuwara and Irrunytju rockhole before heading further north to Docker River.
