Tangki Tjuta (Children's Book)

Tjanpi Desert Weavers


A lovely picture book following the short-film animation 'Tangki', tells a heartwarming story about how tangki ( donkeys ) came to be in the community of Ernabella. The story which originates from three Anangu women, explains how donkeys became valuable helpers and valuable friends of the community. 

Told in Pitjantjatjara and English and featuring the whimsical, distinctive sculptures that have made Tjanpi Desert Weavers famous, this dual language Australian story offers warm and humorous insights from an Anangu perspective
