­A poetic celebration of country and culture, Still Our Country documents the swiftly changing lives of the Yolngu people of Ramingining in the Northern Territory. Originally conceived as an online installation, this evocative carnival of images and sounds makes a bold declaration of identity and offers a hopeful promise of a future.

Although only 600kms from Darwin, Ramingining may as well be in a country other than Australia. It is persistently, almost wilfully, foreign. The people, of a strong, defiant tradition, often speak no English, and struggle to comprehend the madness of rapid change thrashing through their world order.

Consisting of an array of disparate fragments and parts, Still Our Country offers insight into the ways in which Yolngu culture continues to absorb and adapt to the dominant Balanda (white) culture, yet retains its own identity.

Made with the generous contribution of the Yongu of Ramininging.
