Alma Nungarrayi Granites

Warlpiri artist Alma Nungarrayi Granites spends her days painting Yanjirlpirri Jukurrpa (Star Dreaming) so important cultural knowledge about the constellations can be passed onto children, visitors and white people. Like many Warlpiri elders, the sense and purpose of Alma’s life is defined by her custodianship of these ancient stories. There are fewer and fewer desert people who still hold these stories. Kurdiji 1.0 Aboriginal suicide prevention app aims to reconnect young Indigenous people with their songlines, with story, ceremony, culture and country.
