Jardiwarnpa

Warlpiri elders made a series of short films in the early 90s as part of their commitment to communicate culture to the next Aboriginal generation, and to white people too. This clip presents information about the Jardiwarnpa ceremony, which honours Yarripiri the spirit snake.

Kurdiji 1.0 Aboriginal suicide prevention app is the newest Warlpiri initiative. It aims to convey language, ceremony, skin name and law to Indigenous people all over Australia – to build resilience and slow the suicide rate.
