"Yankirri Jukurrpa" (Emu Dreaming) Ngarlikurlangu
This particular site of the Yankirri Jukurrpa" (Emu Dreaming [Dromaius novaehollandiae]) is at Ngarlikurlangu north of Ynendumu. The 'yankirri' travelled to the rockhole at Ngarlikurlangu to find water. This Jukurrpa story belongs to Jangala/ Jampijinpa men and Nangala/Nampijinpa women.
Teddy Jakamarra Gibson was born in the late 60's in Ynendumu, a remote Aboriginal community located 290 km north-west of Alice Springs in the NT of Australia. He is the son on Nancy Napanangka Gibson, a respected artist who also paints with Warlukurlangu Artists.
Teddy Jakamarra has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Ynendumu, since 2005. Warlukurlangu makes regular visits to Nyirripi to drop off canvas, paint and brushes for the artists and to collect finshed artwork. He paints his Jukurrpa stories, Dreamings from his father's side, in particular Dreamings that relate directly to his land - a site west of Nyirrpi in the 'tali' sandhill country close to the Gibson Desert south of Lake McKay-it's features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. Teddy uses an unrestricted palatte to develop a modern interpretation of his traditional culture, building on traditions that stretch back at least fifty millennia.
When Teddy is not painting he likes to go hunting with his family. He especially likes to go hunting for goanna and honey ants.
