Title : Nynmi meeting
Size/Medium : 700 x 450mm: acrylic on canvas Painting
This is a true story from when Tossie was a young girl. All her families had a big meeting in Nynmi to decide where to go once the katiya (white fella) came to their land. Tossie has shown her family walking a long way through the tali (sand dunes) with no water, to four different places, Kintore, Kiwirrkurra, Punmu and Balgo. Today these families still live there, a long way from each other. Tossie tries to visit as much as she can, she misses her families a lot.
