Cindy Pwerle Morton


Cindy Pwerle Morton was born in 1976 in Utopia, Northern Territory. She learned painting the family stories of bush food from her very well known mother Gracie Morton Pwerle, her grandmother Myrtle Petyarre and two famous great aunts, Kathleen Petyarre and Gloria Petyarre.

Cindy Pwerle Morton's Dreamings are the Bush Plum, Bush Medicine Leaves, and relate directly to the foods her country offers, and to her role as a food gatherer.

The women of Alhalkere believe that the spiritual powers give their country the strength and fertility to grow abundant bush food. The spiritual strength is also given to the women who learn the social code that they must abide by in order to nurture themselves and their off-springs into maturity.
