We are Gupapuyngu people and we live here at Gapuwiyak, Galiwin'ku, Milingimbi and Ramingining communities. All Gupapuyngu live within kinship system and speak Gupapuyngu (Dhuwala) language. These four lands, I mentioned above, are located in the north part of Australia called Northeast Arnhem Land. Not only us Gupapuyngu live here, there are also other clan groups with their own languages; Djambarrpuyngu, Warramiri, Wangurri, Gumatj, Ritharrngu, Liya-dhaalinymirri and many other clan groups are living in the top end of the Northern Territory. However, each clan separately own each clan estate, moiety (Dhuwa and Yirritja), its language and painting designs.
All Gupapuyngu people living today are descendants of two people; Ngarritjngarritj and Waltjimirri, who were two brothers. All Gupapuyngu are descendants of these two people. Our homeland is called Djiliwirri, but Djiliwirri itself consists of many separate places, each owned by Gupapuyngu people.
