OTHER NOTES:
This painting depicts designs associated with Kaakuratintja (Lake MacDonald). In mythological times a large group of Tingari Men traveled to this site from Kulkuta, south-west of the Tjkula Community. The Kuningka (Western Quoll) Dreaming also traveled this same route. Since events associated with the Tingari Cycle are of a secret nature no further detail was given.
Generally, the Tingari are a group of mythical characters of the Dreaming who travelled over vast stretches of the country, performing rituals and creating and shaping particular sites.

The Tingari Men were usually followed by Tingari Women and accompanied by novices and their travels and adventures are enshrined in a number of song cycles. These mythologies form part of the teachings of the post initiatory youths today as well as providing explanations for contemporary customs.
