5 Ways To Keep Yourself Cool This Summer Island Style With Emily Wurramara

Published in Lifestyle  
Last month Emily Wurramara released the third and final single from her debut EP, ‘Black Smoke’, titled 'Ementha-Papaguneray (Turtle Song)'.

Launched in support of Greenpeace’s ‘Save the Reef Campaign’, the turtle song is sung in Anindilyakwa (annen-dilly-yark-wah), the traditional language of Emily's home on Groote Eylandt, NT.

Emily has supplied a Top 5 list of ways to keep yourself cool this summer. Onya Emily.

1. Build a cubby house outside. Find the direction of a breeze or a 'cool spot'. My cousins and I used chairs or four big sticks to hold it and sheets to lay on; great for lazing about.

2. The heat can be so extreme and your water bottle can get hot and make you feel even more dehydrated; when you’re around a creek or a beach and you have no eski, let it float in the water to cool it down.

3. When you have a breeze, just wet a sheet, hang it in front of a window or wherever the breeze is coming from and bam! You’re very own natural air-con.

4. Wear sarongs and flowy, warm-coloured clothes. I find that light materials are very airy and for some reason makes me feel like an air goddess.

5. Freeze fruit. It’s the best go-to food during summer. You can freeze anything: strawberries, oranges, blue berries - just add ice cream and you’re good to go.

'Ementha-Papaguneray (Turtle Song)' is available now.
