Linda is the daughter of Wanala Nangala and Rintje Tjungarrayi. Rintje, Linda's father, was killed by a revenge spearing party in accordance of customary law when Linda was a baby.

Kangaroo Man was one of the ancestral spirits from the Dreamtime. These spirits could change their shape from being shapeless and unseen to look like different animals.

The Kangaroo is a man's Dreaming story and part of it forms the law that describes how a kangaroo should be cooked, with harsh penalties applying to any man not following this law.

Linda's father, Rintje, was a descendant from the Ancestral Kangaroo men and therefore is a senior custodian of these Dreaming stories. Through her stepfather, Linda was taught her father's dreaming stories and continues to paint aspects of them today.
