................................................................................................ The Jardiwanpa ceremony celebrates the journey of Yarripiri, an ancestral inland taipan snake, on a journey northwards through Warlpiri country. This book is about the song series sung
 by Warlpiri women from Yuendumu in preparation for this important ceremony. Two senior Warlpiri women, Peggy Nampijinpa Brown and Coral Napangardi Gallagher, tell the stories associated with these songs so that younger generations of Warlpiri people can learn about this important part of their cultural heritage. The book includes the rhythmic structures, words and interpretations for each song, and further depict their significance with accompanying photographs of women in performance and associated images of animals, plants, artefacts and places. 

The book is printed with the technology of sound printing - you can listen to the songs using a ‘speaking pen’. To learn more about this, visit http://soundprinting.batchelor.edu.au
