Yuupurnju: A Warlpiri song cycle documents a ceremonial song cycle situated within the traditional kurdiji "shield" ceremony, as sung by Warlpiri Elder Henry Cooke Anderson Jakamarra at Lajamanu, Northern Territory, in 2013.

The song cycle relates to a women's jukurrpa Dreaming narrative, and tells the story of a group of ancestral women on a journey across the country. Jakamarra performed the songs (recorded by Carmel O'Shannessy) to make them available to the Warlpiri community and the wider public.
