WALANGKURA NAPANANGKA (UTA UTA)

Tjukurla

Walangkura was born circa 1940 beside a rockhole near where the Tjukurla community was later established.

As a young person she travelled with her large family group in the country between Punkilpirri near Docker River, north to Walukirritji rockhole on the south-western side of Lake MacDonald.

Her family were met by a welfare patrol which included Nosepeg Tjupurrula, and were invited to travel in with other Pintupi people to the Haasts Bluff settlement.

While living in Haasts Bluff Walangkura worked for a period in the community laundry, but later moved to Papunya to live with her husband Uta Uta Tjangala, who was one of the original shareholders of Papunya Tula Artists.

Walangkura first painted for the company in 1997 while she moved between Tjukurla, Kiwirrkura and Kintore, but in early 2002 she spent more of her time in Kintore and Kiwirrkura and began painting regularly.
