Mulyatingki is the sister of Donald Moko and Nancy Chapman. She was born at Nyinyari near the Canning Stock Route and when her family saw white people there for the first time, they hid from them in a cave until nightfall. In 1966 Mulyatingki’s family walked into Balfour Downs Station – they were one of the last families to leave the desert. In 1982, Mulyatingki returned to her homelands at Punmu, where she now lives with her sister Ngarnjapayi Nancy Chapman.

This is Pangkapini and all the rock holes and soaks that I remember on the western, northern and eastern sides of Karlamilyi. I grew up around that area with my mum and dad. The Seven Sisters sat down and rested [at many of these places]. When I was a child, we camped one night at Natawalu. The Seven Sisters also rested there.
