Kuul, a short film by Curtis Taylor


The first buildings in each community were the schools. Martu wanted their children to learn English but also their own language. The schools in the western desert are remote independent schools; not state, not public. This gave the community more input on what their children should be taught. They created the schools to be bilingual schools teaching English and Martu Wangka together.
