This colourfully animated visual performance sees six Adnyamathanha women share stories of their ancestors and the memories of growing up on their country.
Same Like Yesterday is a story about six senior Adnyamathanha women and two teenage girls travelling through the Flinders Ranges in the footsteps of Virlkuthalypila, the two women from the Yuramuda (Dreamtime).
Their country is woven together by an endless thread of stories. They are embedded in the land, the sky, the water, and the mountains. Even the animals hold stories from a long time ago. By following the journey of the two women, students will learn to stay safe and respect sacred sites and to help everyone gain a greater appreciation of Adnyamathanha history and culture.
This work is a collaboration between women and children of the Adnyamathanha community and the SharingStories Foundation which works with Indigenous communities to protect, maintain and grow language, stories and cultural heritage through digital technologies and artistic forms for this and future generations.
