Makinti Napanangka was born in 1930 in the Lake MacDonald region of Central Australia. She Moved to Haasts Bluff with her husband, where she lived until; Papunya was established in 1960. Makinti began painting in 1995, when she participated in the Kintore/ Haasts Bluff collaborative canvas project, ‘Minyma Tjukurrpa’. The interest in Pintupi women’s art arose in the mid- 1990s, quite late in the history of the contemporary Aboriginal art movement. It was in 1996 that Makinti Napanangki, along with her cousin and painting companion, Tatali Nangala, began painting for PApunya Tula artists.
