Ceremony on M’Bunghara Creek. The country of M’Bunghara is depicted as a combination of creek and open desert. Maryanne’s ‘landscape’ is scattered with humpies, with people [indicated by U shapes] sitting down around fires [circles surrounded by U shapes], performing Ceremony. This Ceremony is open to all – men, women and children participating.

M’Bunghara, located on M’Bunghara Creek [known as Dashwood Creek] surrounded by Glen Helen Station, is where Maryanne was born to her mother Daisy Leura Nakamarra and father Tim Leura Tjapaltjarri. It is now home to a small Outstation Community of extended family, also called M’Bunghara.
