Healers of Arnhem Land

Booktopia

Summary

For two decades (1970 to 1990), Professor John Cawte visited the Yolngu clan of north-east Arnhem Land every year.

During this time he recorded, with the clan leaders' permission, traditional medicinal knowledge. Healing scenes were specially enacted and photographed.

This information is now presented publicly for the first time in Healers Of Arnhem Land.

In an attempt to span the gulf between European and Australian Aboriginal cultures, and to encourage tolerance and understanding, Healers Of Arnhem Land presents anxieties and distress as intriguing mysteries, threats and challenges that confront both cultures.

Healers Of Arnhem Land is an important, informative, and insightful contribution to Aboriginal studies.
