Minnie Lumai, Miriwoong, Born circa 1941

Senior artist Minnie Lumai tells a key dreaming story for the ownership of country around Kununurra and to the east.  There is place called Yab-yabbe-geni-gim, where wild honey or ‘sugar bag’ is found in the rocks.  The plains kangaroo fought the hill kangaroo over this delicacy, scattering the beeswax across the country. “You can see the rocks there still today.”
