Janganpa Jukurrpa, common brush-tail possum Dreaming travels all over Warlpiri country. Janganpa are nocturnal animals that often nest in the hollows of white gum trees / wapunungka.
This story comes from a big hill called Mawurrji, west of Yuendumu and north of Pikilyi / Vaughan Springs. A group of janganpa ancestors resided there. Every night they would go out in search of food. Their hunting trips took them to Wirlki and Wanapirdi, where they found pamapardu / flying ants. They journeyed on to Ngarlkirdipini looking for water. A Nampijinpa women was living at Mawurrji with her two daughters. She gave her daughters in marriage to a Jupurrurla janganpa but later decided to run away with them. The Jupurrurla angrily pursued the woman. He tracked them to Mawurrji where he killed them with a stone axe. Their bodies are now rocks at this place.
Warlpiri people perform a young men's initiation ceremony, which involves the Janganpa Jukurrpa.
The Janganpa Jukurrpa belongs to Jakamarra/Jupurrurla men and Nakamarra/Napurrurla women.
In Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent this Jukurrpa. Janganpa tracks are often represented as E shaped figures and concentric circles are used to depict the trees in which the janganpa live, and also the sites at Mawurrji.
