Fifty-one Warlpiri artists and story-tellers lead us on a journey through their ritual painting, singing and dancing, on the tracks of their Dreaming Ancestors, who are embodied in the land. This cd-rom represents only a fraction of the complex cultural, ritual and ecological knowledge of the Warlpiri people, but the transposition of their cognitive mapping into an interactive map allows the user an immediate experience of the interconnectivity of indigenous cosmology. The dynamism and wealth of oral traditions reinforce the transmission of indigenous knowledge. This material cannot be posted online in full.
