Kanakiya Tjanyari was born near Waturu, far to the south west of Indulkana.
Her language is Pitjantjatara and skin Kanakiya Pirmangka. Her mother's country is also at Waturru while her father's country is at Walkatjara.
Kanikiya was one of the first members at the art centre at Iwantja.
Kanakiya has successfully exhibited at Desert Mob Exhibitions in Alice Springs and continues to exhibit at various galleries throughout Australia. Her Dreaming are Tjukurrpa (stories) of country

“I saw the missionaries at Ernabella; they were my first white people. They were teaching us tji tji’s (children) at the school – we were all naked, and living in the little humpies.

We made fires and had blankets to stay warm when it was cold. The missionaries were always giving us baths and cooking us lots of porridge. I’m a Ngangkari (traditional healer) as well as an artist. My mother taught me about Ngangkari business.

I’ve got an emu and eagle mapanpa (sacred ngangkari tool) inside me, and my mother gave me fire mapanpa. When I see any people that are sick, I can fly across the countries and put some bush medicine into their bodies by rubbing on their skin. I can give them kuuti (life energy) and make them healthy.”

They are a secure way for consumers to know that the art, craft, souvenirs and other work is the authentic product of either an Indigenous creator or is collaboration between Indigenous creators and others and not a ‘rip-off” The benefits of purchasing products with the correct labelling are:

It will prevent further exploitation of Indigenous Arts and Crafts.

What to look for:

A description of the work of art and product
Identify the Artists/s or Art Centres
Identify their origin, tribe or location
Identify the full royalty statement for licensed products
