Written from the heart of Australia’s central deserts by respected Arrernte elder Margaret Kemarre Turner, this account explains the Australian Aboriginal approach to kinship in personal and poetic terms.
Revealing a sophisticated and robust culture deeply connected to its native land, What it Means to be an Aboriginal Person describes the far-reaching and penetrating organisation of every respectful relationship-such as those between family members, amongst the society as a whole, and with regard to the denizen plants and animals.
Through story-telling, non-Aboriginal peoples will come to appreciate this fascinating culture.
