  • Betty Campbell

Inma inkapai ngayulu. Ngayuku tjukurpa nyanga palunya kutju ngaranyi. Nyanga palunya kutju ngayuku tjukurpa ngaranyi. Ngayulu inma rawangku inkapai munu ngayuku tjukurtjara ngayulu palyalpai canvas nyaratja. Rawangku. Uwa palyo.

I sing ceremony. That’s the message that I would really like to impart. I’d like to leave it at that. I practice ceremony, consistently, and I record the tjukurpa related to me on canvas. This is a consistent practice. Yes, that’s it.

Inma:

Anpurunyana paka-pakanu

Anpurunyana paka-pakanu

Anpurunyana pirinkatingu

Anpurunyana paka-pakanu

This song is from the perspective of a woman who is dancing for the site Anpuru, related to the Maku – Witchetty Grub – tjukurpa that travels near Mimili. The dancer is perhaps becoming the grub in it’s moth form, emerging from the acacia roots.
