PURLAPA MANU JUKURRPA - CEREMONY AND DREAMING Recorded and edited by Sarah Wayne Story by Donovan Jampijinpa Rice Copyright BRDU 2008

English translation: Japalyi is curious about his Jukurrpa. He wants to learn.

He comes across a group of old men who are worried about children not knowing their culture and Jukurrpa.

The old men are happy that Japalyi asks them to teach him his Dreaming story. The old men tell him to meet them at the creek.

They all come together at the creek and tell him all about his Jukurrpa and song.

They show him his Jukurrpa dance.

The old men begin painting his Jukurrpa design on him.

Japalyi dances his Jukurrpa with the old men singing along.

The old men all come and congratulate him on learning his Jukurrpa and remind him, "This is you Jukurrpa, it is who you are, keep it with you always".   ■■■
