Warlpiri Aboriginal Women's Dance, Lajamanu

Our Culture

Added by Oz Outback

Description Women from Lajamanu, an Aboriginal community about 550 kilometres south west of Katherine on the edge of the Tanami Desert perform an ancient dance while other women sing, on the occasion of the Northern Territory achieving self-government on 1 July 1978; they dance around a flagpole with the new NT flag. This was recorded with an old 8 mm film camera, so the technical quality is poor.
