Raelene Williams Walpa Pukla (Whirly Winds) is a story about two big Whirl Winds that caused havoc, destroying all the tribes Humpy’s (small temporary shelters made from bark and tree branches). Theses menacing Whirly Winds eventually settled, turning into two huge Ghost Gum Trees, that still can be seen today. Whirly Winds are an unique occurrence to Central Australia. These mini tornados Whirly winds are a swirling gust of wind collecting leaves, sand and debris in its path, turning the sky red, also scatter seeds to help regenerate bush foods, the latter being at the heart of Raelene’s painting Dreamtime story.
