Otto Jungarrayi Sims

Warlpiri artist Otto Jungarrayi Sims, son of Paddy Japaljarri Sims (who painted some of the Yuendumu doors), speaks about his painting Yanyilpirri Jukurrpa (Milky Way Dreaming) and the Witi dances that belong to ceremonies related to this Dreaming story. Like his father before him, Otto has devoted his life to passing on these important cultural stories to a new generation through the medium of painting.

Warlpiri elders are now turning to technology to increase the reach of their message. They are creating a new app to reconnect Indigenous people with country, ceremony and community.
