Gun-nartpa stories

 

Overview

Gun-nartpa stories is a Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education program. The project aims to create an audio book of Gun-nartpa stories, songs and artworks from elders of the Gochan Jiny-jirra community, north-central Arnhem Land, in the Northern Territory.

The book draws mainly from audio recordings that were made during 1993 and 1994 by linguist Margaret Carew, working with An-nguliny and Gurnimba clan leaders. The project will also make new recordings with people of a range of ages, and all recordings will be documented and archived.

A team of Gun-nartpa language workers will select, transcribe, translate and edit stories and songs, celebrating the community's ancestral narratives and oral histories.

The project is supported by the Australian Government Indigenous languages support program, the Hans Rausing language support program and the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC).
