Giving back oral histories and family trees

Puntura-ya Ninti has received many requests from Martu to continue recording their elders’ stories. Since July last year nine stories were collected from Martu elders. The Puntura-ya Ninti team are hoping to head out to the communities to record more stories throughout the year.

Part of the team’s goal this year is to increase Martu access to the many stories that have been donated or collected by KJ and held for Martu. It is important to bring the stories on trips that are happening on country. Stories are relevant to the places Martu are visiting and the families that belong to those places. Martu can listen to the stories from old people that may not be around anymore or may not be able to come on that trip.
