Mandawuy Yunupingu and Witiyana Marika from Yothu Yindi introduce these videos from their album “Tribal voice”. The brief introductions and the videos themselves give a simple, but telling overview of Aboriginal culture and the need for black and white society to find a common meeting place. The videos are: “Treaty”, “Mainstream”, a traditional Aboriginal dance Gudurrku = brolga”, “Treaty: Filthy Lucre mix”, “Djapana: Gapirri mix and “Tribal voice”, which encompasses a plea for all indigenous cultures to be recognised.
