When the snake bit the sun — iMovie by ES1 students

This book is based on a story told by David Mowaljarlai of the Ngarinyin people to the Aboriginal Children living in the Kimberleys, Western Australia.

Students drew and painted pictures from the story that they related to. They then put these together in order to recreate the story through digital media form using iMovie.

This narrated piece of visual literacy displays the students’ understanding of the lore in the story, and how important Tjdukapa is to Aboriginal peoples.
