« Murayana va à Garma cette année ! » : cérémonies publiques et rituels contemporains du nord-est de la Terre d’Arnhem (Australie)

Abstract : Building on the idea that Yolngu ceremonies from northeast Arnhem Land arise from dynamic negotiations between individuals, clans and ancestors, this article examines how a series of ritual exchanges were performed within the framework of a cultural festival open to tourists. I show how a digital archiving project provided momentum for ritual creativity in several localities within this region, and resulted in a deliberate campaign of self-representation at the Garma Festival, which is a large annual gathering that brings together participants from around the world. Through analysis of the events that first led to the Gupapuyngu clan’s participation in this festival, this article sheds light on some of the political processes that underlie contemporary ritual exchange in Arnhem Land.
