Our Culture

Added by Central Land Council

Description Luckily, the majority of the IPA is free of weeds, especially sandhill and rocky hill country. At water places or access tracks, weeds can come in. Most weeds are found close to Lajamanu and near outstations.
Too many weeds mean that native plants decline. In weed areas, fires can get bigger and hotter and then destroy the fire sensitive native plants.

Northern Tanami Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) committee members directed the CLC to re-imagine their IPA Plan of Management, an English-heavy guide book for looking after the IPA. The brief was to create a lush digital resource using spoken Warlpiri that could be accessed both online and offline to mirror the content of the management plan and be navigated through voice commands. The CLC’s hope is that the IPA digital storybooks will help all Warlpiri – from elders to school children – to better understand and support the work to keep country healthy and culture strong. The CLC has made digital storybooks for both the Southern Tanami and the Northern Tanami IPAs. See www.ngurra.org and www.walyalku.org.au
