AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This book presents stories from the Gun-nartpa people who live in North-Central Arnhem Land. The stories tell of Ancestral Spirits who created the country, and who are celebrated in ceremonies and visual arts. There are also stories from the old days, when hunting, bush foods, warfare and sorcery were part of everyday life. Elders describe the Second World War, the coming of the Welfare Time and the settlement of Maningrida and outstations. The book celebrates the diversity of languages in the region by presenting the stories in both Gun-nartpa and English.' (Source: batchelor.edu.au)
