Yakultji Napangarti


Yukultji Napangati was born near Lake Mackay in Western Australia in 1970. She was a member of the ‘Lost Tribe’ family, living so remotely in the Gibson Desert, that they only made contact with White Australians in 1984. They are cited as the closest work to that untouched by European influence. Many aspects are conveyed in Yukultji’s story- from landforms, to depicting women and their travelling and gathering of various bush foods including bush banana and silky pear vines.
