Yam Dreaming

The importance of the Yam Dreaming narratives of Central and Western Deserts reflects the crucial role this food source played in the lives of traditional people. The Yam is presented in ceremonies through song cycles and dance performances. Alyawarr women pay homage to its life-giving role, and entreat good harvests on their Country in upcoming seasons. The Yam is seen as a symbol of the well-being of their own Country, sustaining the people in close synergy with the land.

Warlpiri people celebrate the Creation stories of the Yam, where the Ancestors pulled out the yam from an underground spring in the Tanami Desert. The Jukurrpa Dreaming story narrates how local warfare followed, as people fought over ownership of the main types of Yams, and warns of the dire consequences for the people when the food resources are not equitably shared.

At the centre of these ceremonies is the message of sustainability and social harmony in the appropriate management of the Yam resources, which were sown and harvested across western and central Australia.
