In collaboration with the Central Land Council, we've produced a bilingual digital storybook that presents the operational and management plans developed for the Southern Tanami Indigenous Protected Area (STIPA).
Read a description of the project below, or check it out at www.walyaku.org.au.
The Southern Tanami Indigenous Protected Area Digital Storybook Plan of Management contains short videos, animations, a seasonal calendar and interactive maps. As an audio-navigated website in both Warlpiri and English, it translates their existing management plan into a form accessible to the Warlpiri traditional owners of the region.
The program was developed for web, tablet and smartphone, with an offline version available for people without internet access. We also produced 38 mini documentaries that were shot within the STIPA or developed from existing media.
The Southern Tanami Indigenous Protected Area Digital Storybook Plan of Management was first presented at the Natural Resource Management Conference in Darwin on 23 November 2016, and has since been launched in the communities of Yuendumu, Nyirrpi and Willowra.
With thanks to Central Land Council, Alice Springs Film and Television, the Southern Tanami IPA Coordinating Council, the Southern Tanami IPA Management Committee and Warlpiri rangers from Yuendumu, Willowra and Nyirripi (past and present).
