Educational Animation for Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Empowered Communities

We produced two educational animations for the NPY Empowered Communities. The first shows how Anangu people are  working together to travel with one voice showing how Anangu  people are applying and combining traditional knowledge and ‘Western’ knowledge  to the challenges of today. The second animation shows the recent history of Anangu  people, introducing core Anangu concepts for living and showing the impact of ‘White Settlement’ from Anangu eyes  and the continued resilience and strength of Anangu people.


“These films tell a story about Empowered Communities. This story says that we (Anangu) are stronger when we work together; Empowered Communities is about all Anangu being united, and working together with Government and Service Provider on one plan for the future – agreed by all. These stories are also about local decision making; Aboriginal people need to lead the development and delivery of local solutions for local problems. This is how we will become empowered communities.”
