Tjanpi Nyawa! Look at the Grass! DVD

Tjanpi Desert Weavers


A film by Dr Christiane Keller

The Tjanpi Nyawa! DVD captures the multi-sensory experiences of Tjanpi Desert Weavers artists collecting tjanpi (grass). It portrays the integration of this more recent artistic expression within desert culture, and shows how collecting tjanpi provides an opportunity to go hunting, collect bush foods, reconnect with special sites, and perform inma (song and dance).

Tjanpi Nyawa! was filmed in and around Warakurna WA.

Language: Ngaanyatjarra and Pitjantjatjara with English subtitles.
