Summary
Comprehensive analysis of the formal movements of yawulyu (womens ritual), kankarlu (dances for boy initiates), initiation ceremonies and sorry business and the structurally similar non formal movements of hunting, camping out and fighting includes detailed ethnographic accounts of both sacred (open) and secular occasions focussing on relationships between participants, emic and etic meanings attached to movement and body transfiguration, techniques, implements (including ritual); the analysis focusses on the intercontextuality of movements (shared patterns) and the interrelationship of contexts (the role of movement in building up systems of environmental and cosmological meaning); Appendices include Benesh Movement Notation for dance, sign language, sorrowing, hunting and fighting movements; based on fieldwork at Willowra
