Description:The fruit, flowers and roots of the plant Haemodorum coccineum called 'rildanda martunymartuny' in Iwaidja are used as a dye for colouring fibre. The colour obtained ranges from orange to purple. The informants demonstrate here the collecting of Haemodorum coccineum. In this case they do not dig the tubers, but cut the dark red flowers and fruits. Demonstration only.
This project documents, in as full a cultural context as is possible, the Iwaidja language of the Cobourg Peninsula, Northern Territory, Australia (Iwaidjan language family, non-Pama-Nyungan), still spoken by around 200 people but under increasing threat from English, as well as recording material from other languages of the region (Marrgu, Ilgar/ Garig, Amurdak and Manangkari) which are all reduced to one or two speakers each. In addition to linguists, the research team will include specialists in ethnomusicology, material culture / archaeology, and social anthropology, and will result in a comprehensive, searchable and browsable sound and video documentation, with Iwaidja transcriptions and subtitles alongside English translations, an Iwaidja dictionary of around 5,000 words, detailed phonetic analysis, and briefer materials on other languages of the area.
