The Wider Image: Thirst turns to anger as Australia's mighty river runs dry
Bruce Shillingsworth, the director of Yaama Ngunna Baaka Corroboree Festival director, plays with his grandson at the Burke and Wills campground near Lake Pamamaroo, in Menindee, New South Wales, Australia, October 2, 2019. Recently, Aboriginal communities 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. "We're going to start dancing and singing the land," Shillingsworth said. "Singing the rivers, singing our environment back again to make it healthy." REUTERS/Tracey Nearmy SEARCH "NEARMY DROUGHT" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
