Milpirri Banners 2018

Text 

Lajamanu, North Tanami Desert

In 2005 a series of sixteen, three metre high banners were created as the backdrop to the first Milpirri performance. In 2012 another eleven banners were added. The banners are like a set of coat of arms to the Warlpiri people of Lajamanu. Each individual is able to identify which banner belongs to them as they represent their families dreaming symbol.

In 2018 we are gathering information contained with in the banners, though a consultation process led by anthropologist Miles Holmes, which will include; talking to families, listening to songs, viewing  paintings and or dancers and linking into knowledge gathered by others working in Lajamanu over the past decades.
