Tjulpu = The Bird
Publisher: ARA IRITITJA PROJECT
Part of the Ara Winki No 1 Series series
Level: All Year Levels
The Ara Irititja Project is a community-based, multimedia digital archive, designed at the request of Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara (Anunga) communities. It includes photos, documents and resources of cultural importance to Anangu. The developers of these seemingly wordy bilingual books, which are suitable for students across year levels, explain that the texts are transcriptions direct from the oral tradition and therefore reflect the real narratives, descriptions and recounts in keeping with the traditional manner of imparting knowledge and understandings. The books are secondary to and support the Ara Winki app which can be downloaded from an app store or directly from https://market.irititja.com/. This title features birds including Eagle, Kingfisher, Fairy Wren and Malleefowl with attractive photos set on black background and white text.
