Mornington Island dances with didgeridoo

This 1988 film shows some of the songs and dances of the Lardil people of Mornington Island and the Borroloola community. Songs and dances are passed down through generations, over thousands of years, and they convey cultural knowledge about country, ceremony, hunting and law. The transmission of cultural knowledge is very important for the wellbeing of Aboriginal people. Kurdiji 1.0 Aboriginal suicide prevention app is an initiative of the Warlpiri community of Lajamanu. Using technology, Warlpiri elders aim to reconnect young Aboriginal people with community, culture and country – to increase resilience and prevent suicides. You can support Kurdiji 1.0 by donating at and sharing the campaign.
