Notes

  • Special issue of Aspect.
  • Guest editor's note: Bubu-Weedarra - Like a long river, Aboriginal culture flows eternally. forever changing, but receiving its life and energy from the same ancient source. Bubu-Weedarra is an Aboriginal word from the Wudjadi language which is one of the many languages that belong to the Yamitji people from the Gascoyne and Murchison Rivers in Western Austraia. Long Water (Bubu-Weedarra) was suggested as a name for this issue by Ernie Dingo: 'It is the tribal name of my mother. She was born on a sandbank along the bend of a river. Mother and river are both givers of life.'
