This is a short video exploring the confusion between the knowledge systems and worldview of Yolŋu culture and the dominant culture of mainstream Australia, and the devastating impacts this confusion has on Yolŋu people. Dharaŋanawuy – a Yolŋu word meaning deep mutual respect and understanding, is what we need to work towards finding a way forward. Watch the video below:
Produced by Dianne Biritjalawuy Gondarra (from the Golumala clan of the Dhurili nation and AHED community education worker) and Jazlie Davis-Grygoruk (AHED team member) in Galiwin’ku, Elcho Island, 2014.
