Brenita Pumani's - Pretty Flower
Pretty Flower. I have painted pretty flowers on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands. When I was a young girl my mother use to take me out bush gathering food and i would always stop and look at the pretty flowers. A few days after a big rain the flowers would be everywhere and all different colours. I have painted these flowers as they remind me of my trips out bush with my mother. Mimili is sited within the beautiful Everard Ranges on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in the north-west of South australia and 488 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs. Mimili is home to 300 Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara people who have been living in the area for millennia in harmony with nature and acting as custodians of the land and the Tjukurpa (creation stories). Mimili was formerly known as Everard Park, which was a cattle station that was returned to Aboriginal ownership through the 1981 AP Lands Act. Mimili Community was incorporated as an Aboriginal Community in 1975.
