Marrngumili Warrarn Muwarr Pirraja - Sharing Desert Stories

Our Way

Added by Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation

Description Join the Nyangumarta Rangers as they travel through desert country on the road to Kiwirrkurra in Western Australia.

Over four days in August 2021, the Nyangumarta Rangers share skills, stories and song with eleven Kiwirrkurra and three Li-Anthawirriyarra Sea Rangers from Borroloola.

Together, the rangers hunt for feral cats over spinifex covered sand plains, discover the burrows of the endangered Tjalapa (Great Desert Skink) and visit Wilkinkara, a breathtaking salt lake and sacred place for the Pintupi people.

Special thanks to the Indigenous Desert Alliance for funding this ranger exchange and film directed by Luke Sweet.

We acknowledge the Nyangumarta and Kiwirrkurra Traditional Owners of the land upon which this film was produced. We acknowledge elders past, present and future as well as the ongoing role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in caring for country.
