AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'“Yawulyu have been passed down through many generations of Walpiri women. In this book, the juju-ngaliya ‘ritual experts’ from Yuendumu, present four yawulyu song series which follow the journeys of a number of ancestral beings across Walpiri country. … The book provides rhythms, sung words, translations and accompanying stories of 64 songs, alongside audio-links and photographs of the women in performance. The accompanying DVD contains footage of women from Yuendumu painting their bodies with red and white ochres and performing the four yawulyu song series and their associated dances. The juju-ngaliya of Yuendumu intend this book to be a new way to pass on these yawulyu to future generations of Walpiri women.”' (Publication summary)
