Warburton's Indigenous youth part of community effort to reduce petrol sniffing

Indigenous children from the Warburton community in the Northern Territory have helped produce a music video as part of a community project aimed at reducing volatile substance use.

Local youth wrote lyrics, played instruments and helped record and produce the Don't be rama rama film clip, a health promotion video highlighting the health risks of petrol sniffing using the local Ngaanyatjarra language.

The community project was funded by Red Dust Role Models, a non-profit health promotion charity, in collaboration with Indigenous Hip Hop Projects and Muso Magic. The project was funded as part of the Australian Government's Petrol sniffing strategy.
