This painting is about a place close to Mimili Community called Victory Well. This is a place we go to to swim in summer, to camp, to collect mingkulpa. In the old days, my nanna used to go there to collect fresh water. The water comes out of the large rock boulders and runs down in a stream. It also gathers in waterholes on top of the rocks. There are hard to find, but I have painted a map of where we can find these.

Mimili Community, home to 300 Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara people who have been living in the area for millennia in harmony with nature and as custodians of the land and the Tjukurpa (creation stories). Mimili was formerly known as Everard Park, which was a cattle station that was returned to Aboriginal ownership through the 1981 AP Lands Act. Mimili Community was incorporated as an Aboriginal Community in 1975
