Marapinti is a rock hole west of Kiwirrkurra. Where the country is flat, the Marapinti Jukurrpa tell the story of young women of all skin groups travelling between rockholes and the easternmost point on the Seven Sisters’ journey across Martu Country. The women travelled whitout men and they went to Milmilpa and Yaka Yaka east of Malpurri. As they journey through the landscape, singing and dancing towards Pintupi Country, the Minyipuru created waters and landforms. On reaching Marapinti, they pierced their noses, a practice known as marapinti. Today the Minyipuru can be seen there as a group of rocks, sitting up like women.
