of our industry partners is the Yothu Yindi Foundation,
home to the Garma Cultural Studies Institute. Every
year at the Garma
festival in Gove, yolngu elders work together with
nonyolngu researchers, students, and policy makers on
issues of importance to the futures of indigenous and
nonindigenous people in Australia and around the world
- law, health, art, sustainability, land, identity etc.
The yolngu Studies group
Darwin University has attended each garma held over
the past 6 years, and made collections of yolngu and
nonyolngu discussions - on video, audio, and transcribed
and translated in a number of texts. These resources,
often in groups of related video or audio files, along
with related text files of transcriptions and translations,
will be made available as a collective memory resource
for the Institute.
We are currently developing drawings and specifications for the development of the search mechanisms for the GCSI/CDU database.
