Tjawina Nampitjinpa Porter is my mother. She has lived her life in a desert country, a world away from the cities of Australia. It’s an arid land – a beautiful land – a network of water sources that are ours. The richness of Tjawina’s knowledge and skill comes from a life spanning immense societal change. Thanks to the power of her storytelling and her endless generosity, Tjawina continues to give not just to her families, but to the entire world.
