Interview with Malcolm Jagamara (Lander River)
Malcolm Maloney Jagamarra shares with Sabine Haider the story details of the artwork Lander River. The Lander River is 200 miles north-west of Alice Springs in Central Australia. The Lander River is the birthplace of Malcolm Maloney Jagamarra as well as a significant site to the Warlpiri Aboriginal people. It is at this place where ceremonies, sacred songs, dance cycles and Dreaming's emerged. The Lander River flows relatively frequently; has a number of long-lasting (but not permanent) waterholes and swamps;and supports the longest area of braided flood-out inNorthern Territory arid zone.
