Judith Yinyika Chambers

Born 1958, Purungu skin group.

Judith Yinyika Chambers was born at Mitjika, a rock-hole near what is now Wanarn community. Her family settled at Warburton mission while she attended school. Chambers completed her schooling at Pink Lake High School in Esperance, on the south coast of Western Australia.

The family moved to Docker River in the Northern Territory in the late 1960s, to be closer to their homelands.

Her family returned to Warakurna as part of the 1970s movement back to country.
