Yindyamarra Yambuwan

The 15 minute film Yindyamarra Yambuwan: A film in Wiradjuri Language is now complete. The name has been changed to give it a clear identity. Drawn from three years of conversations with Wiradjuri Elders, Yindyamarra bala Yambuwan – “Yindyamarra is everything” is the sentiment shared by every Wiradjuri Elder involved.
