Free iOS App: Ngurrara – Australian Aboriginal Interactive Storybook
Ngurrara follows the journeys of three young Australian Aboriginal Ngarluma men as they fish, hunt and carve their own stories. It is set on Murujuga (Burrup Peninsula), home to nearly one million petroglyphs, some over 30,000 years old. As the landscape, the people and culture change over millennia, one thing remains the same, the Ngarluma people 'were always here.'
The app includes:
– 30 pages of illustrations with sound, animation and voice overs
– learn Ngarluma language, with each Ngarluma word individually illustrated and translated into English
– carve your own petroglyph through the rock art carving application
Please spread the word and support the Ngarluma people by adding a review and joining iCampfire.tv
