  • Imintji is a community 230 km's up the Gibb River Road from Derby. Edna lives in Iminjti with her husband, Lance Bedford, and their seven daughters. Edna is the chairperson for Imintji community. A settlement has existed at Imintji since the 1950's however Edna's father, Jack Dale Mengenen (dec), established the community after winning his land claim in the 1980's.

    Jack taught Edna about their country, Imintji, and its surrounds. He told her that Iminjti is a women's dreaming place and said that this is why the country gave Edna seven daughters and no sons.
