ABOUT THE BOOKS
SAWIYANO: Drawings, Volume 1
While on location doing the filming, art supplies of paper, pens, watercolors and colored pencils were provided to the village of Wabualu. Both the residents of the village and visitors were welcome to draw. While they were welcome to keep the drawings, many were given to Betni Kalk. It took some coaxing to get the women to draw, but they were soon adding to the stack of drawings. Frequent themes include animals that are hunted, homes, fishing, food from gardens and traditional motifs.
> This is not yet published but it will probably be 8 x 10 inches, about 30 pages
> Hope to be completed/available in summer 2018
> Profits go back to the Sawiyano for medical and educational needs.
