Kawarla - how to make a Coolamon


Kawarla or coolamons are an important part of Gurindji culture. They are used to carry young babies, collect bush foods and medicines and they have an important place in many ceremonies. Kawarla: How to Make a Coolamon book and accompanying DVD shows how coolamons are carved and the types of trees used to make them. An innovation of the book is the use of QR codes so the reader can hear the words spoken by Gurindji elders.
