The Screen Guide

The story of the journey made by Warlpiri people from Lajamanu, travelling on foot, horseback and tractor across 230 km of the Tanami Desert back to Kamira - an Aboriginal out-station. Kamira has been home to the Warlpiri Aborigines for thousands of years. In the 1950s and 1960s Warlpiri people were forcibly moved from their country into government settlements. Since the late 1960s some Aboriginal people have been voting with their feet against the assimilation policies. They are walking away from those days towards the freedom of their own land. This video tells the story of that return.
