Yindyamarra Yambuwan

Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre
Friday 8:40am – 8:55am

Take the opportunity to learn more about the Wiradjuri concept of Yindyamarra. The film Yindyamarra Yambuwan is drawn from three years of conversations with Wiradjuri Elders. Yindyamarra bala Yambuwan – “Yindyamarra is everything” was the sentiment shared by every Wiradjuri Elder involved. The film is centred on over 20 poems in Wiradjuri language, with video from Wiradjuri country, exploring some of the many aspects of Yindyamarra. Yindyamarra is often translated as respect, but actually it describes the whole Wiradjuri way of Life.
