George Ward Tjungurrayi

George was born near the site of Lararra, east of Tjukurla in Western Australia c. 1955 and is a Pintupi member. His first contact with Europeans was made through one of the welfare patrols led by Jeremy Long and Nosepeg Tjupurrula at a rockhole south of Kiwirrkura. After travelling in to Papunya he worked as both a fencer as well as a butcher in the Papunya kitchen. George's father was also the father of Yala Yala Gibbs Tjungurrayi and Willy Tjungurrayi and although they had different mothers he considers them very close brothers.
