Maureen Jipiyiliya Nampijinpa O’Keefe grew up in the remote community of Ali Curung in the NT. Her family lived a bush life. They didn’t own much but her mother had a very special ‘elephant’. It was her mother’s most prized possession and she gave it tender loving care. When her mother’s friends were around, they had real tea-parties with the elephant. Often her mother would sleep with it beside her bed.
