Yaritji is a Pitjantjatjara woman born in the bush near the creek at Ernabella circa 1956. She attended school in Amata, and as a young girl would visit Ernabella and Fregon on the weekends. Her father came from Rocket Bore near Pipalyatjarra and her mother, Paniny Mick, came from near the Perentie Dreaming site at Irrunytju. Yaritji learnt how to make baskets at Amata and like her other Pitjantjatjara relatives probably learnt it from her Western Australian Ngaanyatjarra relatives when they were visiting in the late 1990s. Her style is very creative and she has made a wide variety of humorous objects such as small trucks and camp crockery; her most favoured objects, though, are the very large low-rimmed baskets decorated with emu feathers.
