    Description

    If you've ever wanted to learn more about Wiradjuri culture you won't want to miss the screening of Yindyamarra Yambuwan (Respect is Everything) on Saturday, July 1. Yindyamarra Yambuwan has been produced by Charles Sturt University academic Bernard Sullivan. The fifteen minute film tells the story of the Wiradjuri philosophy of Yindyamarra in Wiradjuri language. Yindyamarra has multiple meanings including respect, give honour, go slow and take responsibility. The film includes introductions by Dr Uncle Stan Grant Senior and his sister Aunty Flo Grant who are both prominent members of the Wiradjuri Council of Elders. It describes a field of mutual respect that is the Wiradjuri way of life and is based on years of deep conversation with Wiradjuri elders including Uncle Stan Grant. Yindyamarra Yambuwan is being brought to Parkes by the Lachlan Reconciliation Action Group as part of NAIDOC week. "As this year's NAIDOC theme is "Our Languages Matter", we think the film is a good fit," Chair of the Lachlan Reconciliation Action Group, David Acheson said. "We're excited to bring the film to Parkes to educate the community on this important Wiradjuri philosophy." Mr Acheson said the film conveys a philosophy that is relevant to everyone, not just Indigenous people. "We will also be launching a book of the film," he said. "There are subtitles in the film and the book has translations." "We'd like to invite everyone along to the screening and believe everyone will get something out of it." Yindymarra Yambuwan will be screened in the Coventry Room at the Parkes Shire Library complex at 12pm and then again at 4pm on Saturday July 1. "We'd like to thank Parkes Shire Council, who have been extremely helpful," Mr Acheson said. "Gawaymbanha biyambul (welcome all)." On Saturday, July 8, the Forbes Aboriginal & Community Working Party will have a single screening at the Forbes Services Club. .
