    y Don't Ask For Stories : The Women From Ernabella and Their Art Tjukurpa Tjapintja Wiya : Minyma Anapalanya Ngurara Tjutangku Warka Palyantja Craftroomangka Ute Eickelkemp , Kanytjupai Armstrong (translator), Canberra : Aboriginal Studies Press , 1999 Z1605691 1999 anthology oral history This is a collection of life stories in both written and illustrative form from the women and men of Ernabella, in northern South Australia. The stories tell of the interaction between white and black women that led to the establishment and development of a significant school of Australian art, Ernabella Art Inc, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1998. From 'first missionary coming', through the terror of the nearby atomic bomb tests in the 1950s, to the commercial and artistic successes of the 1990s, the stories speak of great losses and regrets, but also of remarkable achievements, and of the skill and strength of the individuals whose voices we hear.
