Audrey Martin Napanangka is a Warlpiri woman and like other women of her tribe, she likes to go bush walking for food gathering. This is often accompanied by singing and dancing to encourage an increase in yields for the next year.
Audrey Martin Napanangka’s dreamings are bush tucker (food), including Witchetty Grubs, Bush Coconut, Bush Onion, Bush Sultana, Desert Tomato and Sweet Potato. Some of her paintings and designs have been printed into fabric.
