David Gulpilil dances

Kurdiji 1.0 Aboriginal suicide prevention app is in its final week of crowdfunding and we need your help! Warlpiri elders are using technology to reconnect young Aboriginal people, all over the country, with culture, community and country.

This film shows three dances of traditional Aboriginal dance performed by the beautiful David Gulpilil. The Emu and The Kangaroo are solo performances, while the third dance, The Fish, is a group dance performed with some people from Bamyili, in the Northern Territory. All three dances are accompanied by the didgeridoo and clap sticks. From The Film Australia Collection. Made by the Film Australia 1978. Directed by David Roberts.
