Womens’ ceremonies at Marrapinti
By Yukultji (Nolia) Napangati
A traditional song, words of wisdom from elders, a rhythmic dance performed at dawn; these can all bring a sense of ceremony to the day.
With ceremony and ritual, even the most mundane tasks can be transformed into a meaningful tradition that put the mind and body in a calm and positive space. There is comfort and safety in performing the same tasks every morning, and the morning ritual sets the tone for the whole day.
In our modern world, coffee is one of the fundamental aspects of the morning ritual for many.
Women’s ceremonies at Marrapinti depicts designs associated with the site of Marrapinti, west of the Kiwirrkurra Community and the Pollock Hills in Western Australia.
A large group of ancestral women camped at this rock hole before continuing their travels further east, passing through Wala Wala, Kiwirrkurra and Ngaminya.
While at the site the women made nose bones, also known as marrapinti, which are worn through a hole made in the nose web. These nose bones were originally used by both men and women but are now only worn by the older generation on ceremonial occasions. As the women continued their travels towards the east they gathered the edible berries known as kampurarrpa, or desert raisin, from the small shrub solanum centrale. These berries can be eaten directly from the plant but are sometimes ground into a paste and cooked on the coals as a type of damper.
