Songspirals are a way of exploring the connection between Country, culture, people and story. In this piece, the Gay'wu group of women explain what a songpiral is in their Yolngu culture and how it connects with their stories and experiences.

We want you to come with us on our journey, our journey of songspirals. Songspirals are the essence of people in this land, the essence of every clan. We belong to the land and it belongs to us. We sing to the land, sing about the land. We are that land. It sings to us.
