Ningie was born circa 1930 in the Pippar/Kiwirrkurra area. Her mother died when she was very young, and she came to the Balgo Mission when her family group was camped at Lirrwati close to Balgo on the invitation of Aboriginal people living there. As a young girl she tended the mission goats, gathering bush food for them to eat.

Like many people at that time, she returned to her own country before settling more permanently at the old mission, first at Tjalyiwarn, then at its present site at Wirrumanu from 1962. She married and had four children. After her first husband passed away, she married Tjumpo, another important Balgo artist, and had a further five children.

Her Dreamings include: longtailed desert mouse; Tingari men; snakes and lizards; rockholes; women's law ground.
