The Martu Archive computers in the Kunawarritji ranger station and Punmu community office are back up and running. The two computers have been used a lot since they have been back online. The computers in Warralong School and Wangka Maya in Hedland were also updated during a recent visit in April, so that Martu in these places can access their photos, movies and other materials. 

Puntura-ya Ninti staff also visited Karlarra House Aged Care in Hedland to provide Martu with films and other resources. Photos of some of the Martu elders currently residing at Karlarra House were printed from the Martu Archive and were very warmly received. They prompted storytelling from the elders and are a way for staff to increase their understanding of Martu. Karlarra House Aged Care is planning outings to Wangka Maya to look at photos on the archive computer.
