About Margaret Martin

Margaret Nungarrayi, or Pamparriya, is a senior law lady in Lajamanu. Her country includes some of the lands close to Lajamanu, 100kms South East of the town at Duck Ponds going South West to the Granites. She has walked hundreds of kilometers around the Tanami. Pamparriya was born at a time of cattle stations, to the north of Lajamanu. There she watched as her people were working and dying at the hands of the station owners and workers. Life experiences have made her such an interesting and witty person.  Her family are equally dynamic. Visitors and workers have been profoundly impacted by this wonderful Warlpiri woman.  She is an artist who understands her law, country and identity.
