Story from the certificate of authenticity:
This is the story of the older sister going a long way to get her younger sister and bring her back. They went through many places on the way, but I will only talk about a short bit of their journey at Wingellina. Two women, they both came from up high and they stayed a while. They both could see that Docker River was close, those two women. And as they were sitting there they performed ceremony, inma. After this they both threw away their weapons, they threw them away. Their head-rings, They threw away their head rings. Then they got up and left. They went to another place, a hollow called Kantarangkutjara, in the middle there and then they travelled on to Docker River. The story of their travels after Docker River belongs to the Docker River people and others in distant country. my part of the story is short. At Wingellina, they sat up high, that's Tjukurrpa, that's the Dreaming Law. Then they went to their home country. True story!
