Abstract

This paper outlines an approach to collaborative intercultural work in language documentation through a project called Gun-nartpa Stories (2010-2014). The work commenced as a repatriation of 75 digitized cassette tapes recorded during 1993-96 from elders at Gochan Jiny-jirra outstation in north-central Arnhem Land, and developed into a collaborative documentation and publishing project. A core project team emerged, consisting of this author and An-nguliny men Patrick Muchana, Crusoe Batara and Raymond Walanggay. We worked together to review the recordings and select, transcribe and translate a number of stories and numerous other family members also participated as transcribers, translators and consulted with the team on aspects of the project. Some contributed additional material to the project through recordings and conversations about history and clan connections (England, Muchana, Walanggay, & Carew, 2014, pp. xii-xix).
