Otto Jungarrayi is the custodian of Jukurrpa stories of the Yiwarra (Milky Way Dreaming) passed to him by his father, the painter Paddy Japaljarri Sims. These stories relate the songlines of his ancestral Country at Kunajarrayi and Yanjilpirri.
Some of Otto’s Jukurrpa stories include Yiwarra, Yanjirlpirri, Warlu, Warna, and Ngarlkirdi (Milky Way, Star, Fire, Snake, and Witchetty Grub).
