Iwenhe Tyerrtye - What it Means to be an Aboriginal Person

Booktopia

Summary

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.
