Yothu Yindi Foundation brings you the
Garma Key Forum for 2020
As we experience the fatigue of the pandemic, its feels only natural that Garma would seize the opportunity to reconvene the North with the South. For you we've built an online portal taking you from NE Arnhem Land in one day to Melbourne the next. Please enjoy these speeches, bought to you in collaboration with our sponsors at The University of Melbourne.
Two Decades of Garma Footprints
Bunggul (traditional dance) takes places each evening at Garma, around sunset (Djapana). Guests are called to the ceremonial dance grounds through the reverberation of the yidaki, calling all to gather together as one community. Given there are so many activities throughout the day, the bunggul is for the purpose of winding down, and enjoying the end to your day with families and friends nearby. The stories handed down through the bunggul have been sung for the past 60,000 years. We’d like to share with you some of the special times we’ve had in gathering clan groups together to perform ancient forms of expression that provide meaning to we Yolngu people, and our deep history imbedded in the flora and fauna of NE Arnhem Land.
