WATARRU, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA: Anangu (word for Pitjantjatjara or Yankunytjatjara person) women take a break for a meal while performing cultural inmas (ceremonies) at Ilpilli near the Watarru Community (Mt. Lindsay) in Great Victoria Desert, South Australia. The first dance was about pregnancy and the storyline of this place. The second dance was about fire (see flames on chests). The word Watarru means "the fire place." Men are not aloud to attend ceremonies like this and there are male ceremonies that women are not permitted to attend as well. _________________________________
