"We drink water at Puntawarri. we clean and dig that waterhole. This country is Puntawarri. My nanna, Dadda, taught me to paint this Country. Puntawarri is important because it is my pop's ,my nannas' husband's place. They camped there and went hunting for goanna or anything, kangaroo or turkey. At Puntawarri there are all the waterholes .Good hunting this country. There is still some Rabbit Proof Fence there." - Judith Anya Samson

Puntawarri is an important cultural area located on the middle stretches of the Canning Stock Route and east of the Jigalong Mission (now Jigalong Aboriginal community), where Judith grew up and continues to live with her grandmother and renowned Martumili Artist, Dadda Samson. Puntawarri is also the site of an abandoned community, a waterhole, creek and lake. Puntawarri's close proximity to Jigalong Mission made it a popular site for Martu to visit during the 'mission days'.
