Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula, Papunya Tula Artists
Born around 1930, Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula and his nomadic family traversed the land between lake Mackay and today’s site of the Kiwirrkura community. During the 1950s, with wife Walangkura and extended family, Yungut trekked north to the distant Balgo Community. Returning to the Lake Mackay region, in 1956 he travelled to Yuendumu with an Anglo-Australian patrol. He subsequently abandoned nomadic desert life, travelling to Haast's Bluff and then to Papunya when it was established in late 1959.
