Origin : Yuendumu Art Center

This story of Pirlarla Jukurrpa (Dogwood tree bean dreaming) comes from the country near Yiningnarra, south of Rabbit Flat and several hundred kilometers northwest of Yuendumu. This Jukurrpa moves westward and starts near Yumurrpa. Ancestral Dreamtime Women from the Napurrula / Nakamarra sub-section travelled and collected the "pirlarla" (seeds and pods) from the "wakirlpirri" tree (a variety of acacia tree), a precious and highly prized food source. During the summer period, the 'pirlarla' pods are collected, burnt and crushed. The juice from the seeds is also edible. The guardians of this Dream are the men Jakamarra / Jupurrurla and the women Nakamarra / Napurrurla.
