Tjanpi Nyawa! (DVD)


Tjanpi Nyawa! captures the multi-sensory experiences of Tjanpi Desert Weavrs, Aboriginal fibre artists who work mainly with grass, wool and raffia. It also portrays the integration of this more recent artistic expression within the desert culture. The collecting of grass is an opportunity to go hunting and collecting bush foods, to reconnect with special sites and provide an occasion for inma, dance and song performances embodying stories, designs and rhythms of the Tjukurrpa.
