Ngiyaapaa girl prepares for Corroboree in Wilcannia.

Wilcannia, Australia
Ngiyaampaa girl Punta Williams poses for photographs on the dry river bed of the Darling River before performing at the Yaama Ngunna Baaka Corroboree festival in Wilcannia, New South Wales.
Aboriginal communities have recently held special festivals along the river ‘to heal the Barka’. Ochre-painted dancers performed around fires at dusk, revering the river but also seeking to draw attention to its plight.
