BIRD POSTER ALYAWARR THINGS THAT BIRDS LET YOU KNOW ABOUT
University of Queensland and the Charles Darwin University School for Policy and Social Research has produced a series of posters of bird knowledge in the Arrernte, Anmatyerr, Alyawarr and Kaytetye languages spoken throughout central Australia.
Individually they portray 25 or so birds found in the areas in which each language is spoken. As a set they reveal the depth of knowledge that Aboriginal people have of the birds that they hunt, share campsites and townships with and which are spiritually important or are involved in or related to traditional ceremonies and beliefs.
