Eubena Nampitjin

Country/Region: Australia

Eubena (Yupinya) Nampitjin is the best known of Warlayirti Artists' many painters in Balgo Hills. She is one of the most esteemed law women in the community, being consulted and deferred to on all questions of law. Mukaka, Eubena's mother, taught her Maparn (healer/witchdoctor) skills before she passed away, when Eubena was just a young girl. The family travelled and hunted, performing ceremonies and law for the upkeep of their country and their own spiritual preservation. Nomadic life was harsh and most of her extended family had passed away or moved to other parts of the country.
