Emma Singer is one of the strong emerging painters in Mimili. She works alongside her mother Pauline Wangin, and has collaborated with her on several paintings. Through the visual language passed from generation to generation, she explores her connection to manta (country) and Tjukurpa (an ongoing, eternal, life-giving transformative power that accounts for every aspect of existence). This painting depicts the kapi tjukula (water holes), murpu and apu (mountains and rocks), tali (sand hills) and punu (trees) that surround Emma's home of Mimili Community. Mimili has many ancestral songlines that criss-cross the land. A really important place for Anangu from Mimili is Antara, a cermeonial site on top of a hill. This is a place for inma (ceremonial song and dance) relating to the Maku (witchetty grub) Tjukurpa.
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.
