Tinpulya Mervyn

Tinpulya Mervyn was born in the bush at Kelvin Well a soak near Kunmapi (Kenmore Park) in South Australia in 1945. Her parents had travelled from Watarru to the mission at Ernabella where they worked as shepherds. As a child she remembers making the journey back to Watarru with her parents where they exchanged dingo skins for flour, tea and sugar. Tinpulya has  a passion for teaching traditional law and culture to her grandchildren so they grow up strong and proud.

She is a respected community leader and has Ngankari (sacred healing) knowledge. Cultural knowledge is handed down orally in the retelling of the Tjukurpa (tradional stories of the ancestors’ journeys), which not only sustains Anangu (Aboriginal people) physically, butsocially and spiritually.
