Pikilyi is a large and important waterhole and natural spring near Mount Doreen station. Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming) tells of the home of 2 rainbow serpents, ancestral heroes who lived together as man and wife. The woman 'rainbow serpent' was of the Napanangka skin group, the man was a Japangardi. This was a taboo relationship contrary to Warlpiri religious law.

Women of the Napanangka and Napangardi subsection sat by the 2 serpents, picking lice off them. For this service, the 2 serpents allowed the women to take water from the springs at Pikilyi. This was because the serpents were the 'kirda', or ceremonial owners, for that country. The spirits of these 2 rainbow serpents are still at Pikilyi today. This Dreamings belongs to the women and men of the Japanangka/Napanangka and Japangardi/Napangardi skin groups.
