AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A fascinating account of a people from the far north Kimberley of Western Australia who have experienced upheaval on a monumental scale. Chalarimeri tells of the customs of his ‘people from the sunrise side’ and what he calls ‘the clash of two cultures’. His views on contemporary issues that are impacting on his beloved country—native title, appropriation of rock art, Aboriginal health and the effects of tourism on the pristine Kimberley wilderness are compelling.'

Works about this Work

BlackWords: Writers on Country Anita Heiss , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: The BlackWords Essays 2015; (p. 3)

In this essay Heiss not only illustrates the breakdown of stereotypes of what Indigenous relationship with land is, but she showcases the wealth of literature being penned nationally by writers who express the diversity of their experiences of 'country'. Whether it be their traditional lands, places they have chosen to relocate to; those that they or their families were removed to; places that people call home and/or connect to; and those who embrace a physical landscape. An historical, social and political space that renders them specifically and culturally significant to individuals, families and community.
