Lindsay lives in a small extended family group with his wife Mavis, and three daughters, Kavean, Jessica and Rosy Ngale. Their lifestyle is still very much traditional, maintaining strong links with their land values and ceremony. Lindsay is recognized in his community, as one of the leaders in the Art movement from Utopia. Lindsay is represented in many private and Museum collections both in Australia, overseas and in Books such as 'A Picture Story-Robert Holmes a Court collection' and 'The Art of Utopia' by Michael Boulter.

Lindsay is a very important Aboriginal leader in the Utopia district. Lindsay Bird Mpetyane is the cousin to Greeny Petyarre and brother in law to Ada Bird. Lindsay’s dreamings include ‘Charpa’ (honey ant), ‘Bush Plum”, ‘Men’s Ceremony”, “Yam Dreaming” and ‘Snake Dreaming”. One of the themes to Lindsay’s painting is his reference to sacred ceremonial sites where “men’s’ business” is conducted. Lindsay most often depicts these sites in a circular style surrounded by hunting weapons which are the spirits keeping the area safe.

These paintings are simple in their design but very strong in their meaning reflecting Lindsay’s respect for the ceremonies conducted at these sites. Lindsay has been associated with Mbantua since 1985 and produced his first painting for us in 1987. Lindsay painting of a Snake Dreaming and is still held in the Mbantua collection. Lindsay paintings are keenly sought by collectors and galleries throughout the world. Lindsay dreamings include Prickle, Mulga Tree, Bloodwood trees, Bush Plum, Honey Ant and Woomera.
