Nyuju is Rover Thomas’s sister. Born at Kukapanyu (Well 39), she grew up in the desert but eventually followed the drovers north along the stock route.
She travelled to Balgo mission with her uncle, Jamili, an Aboriginal stockman. Nyuju later moved to Fitzroy Crossing, where she, like her brother, became a pioneering artist in her own right.
