'Inma-ku painting palyani. They are making a painting as part of Inma' Nelly Patterson 2019
Inma plays an important role in the lives of the Anangu. It is described as a ceremony which incorporates singing and dancing. The continued practice of this ceremony has helped keep the traditions of Anangu culture strong.
Anangu are represented as they have been for centuries by the 'u' shape left by in the sand after they have been sitting down cross-legged. The dots and lines are like the patterns of different desert vegetation types or markings made in the sand as part of story telling.
Within the traditions of Tjukurpa or Creation Law are coded life survival skills. There is inma or ceremony for all beings of creation in order to teach and celebrate; for people to learn where they fit within both the environment and social systems.
Anangu feel strongly about continuing to teach and learn Tjukurpa and their art is important and vital work. It sustains them economically, physically and culturally. It keeps the stories and traditions alive.
