A new digital app is underway – a key tactic to record and pass on warrarnmili ninti

Digital App Project: a new way elders can teach, share and pass on knowledge of country

The development of a digital app for Martu to use on country is currently underway! As Martu travel country, this app is planned to show the names and locations of kalyu (waterholes) and share the stories and histories of Martu elders.

The app is will be a new way elders can teach, share and pass on warrarnmili ninti (knowledge of country) for young people and future generations.

There have been many conversations so far about the app and what is should contain. So far, Martu have discussed the importance of young people knowing where their country is, how to show respect to country, the families that belong to country, knowing country’s stories and sharing knowledge about mirrka (plant foods), kuka (meat) and waru (fire).
