This community report is about the Keeping the Desert Story Alive project carried out by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies and Central Desert Native Title Services in the Kiwirrkurra community in Western Australia. This report provides an update of the project following the first workshop held at Kiwirrkurra in April 2017. The pilot project is about finding ways to return Kiwirrkurra material to the community, record new stories and develop strong rules about keeping community stories safe.
