AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The ngangkari are the traditional healers of the Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara Lands, encompassing 350,000 square kilometres of the remote western desert. For thousands of years the ngangkari have nurtured the physical, emotional and social well-being of their people. To increase understanding and encourage collaboration with mainstream health services and the wider community, the ngangkari have forged a rare partnership with health professionals and practitioners of Western medicine. Experience the world of the ngangkari as they share their wisdom, natural healing techniques and cultural history through life stories, spectacular photography and artwork. ' (Publisher's blurb)

— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 1 2017; (p. 117-119)

'Traditional healers of Central Australia: Ngangkari is a rich and diverse collection of Ngangkari stories that builds on the previous text, Ngangkari work — Anangu way, which is now out of print. The text contains stories, similes and symbols of Anangu cultural beliefs and ways of life, and the sophisticated translations from Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra by the translation team must be noted.'  (Introduction)
