Manyu Wana : children's media
This production page brings together some of our videos and audio that we think children will especially like. Suitable for children 0-16 and all those young at heart.
Manyu Wana means just for fun in Warlpiri. Warlpiri Media Association made the Manyu Wana series in the early 1990s. Known as the Warlpiri Sesame Street, Manyu Wana was a fun way to support literacy and numeracy development in Warlpiri, the first language of Yuendumu children.
Since the Manyu Wana series PAW Media has also produced the Mangarri Panu and Animating Jukurrpa series . Mangarri Panu is a series about healthy eating for children and includes information about nutrition as well as recipes and cooking tips. The Animating Jukurrpa video series contains some children's videos developed from local Warlpiri readers as well as from Jukurrpa stories.
We have also been developing audio books for the PAW Radio Network. These audio books are developed from Warlpiri readers developed from the Bilingual Resource Development Unit of the Yuendumu School.CREATED 06 October 2012 LAST MODIFIED 06 October 2012
