Iwenhe Tyerrtye: What It Means to Be an Aboriginal Person

By Margaret Kemarre Turner, Barry McDonald Perrurle and Veronica Perrurle Dobson.

Written from the heart of Australia’s central desert by a respected Arrernte elder, this account explains the Australian Aboriginal approach to kinship in personal and poetic terms. Revealing a sophisticated and robust culture deeply connected to its native land, this book describes the far-reaching and penetrating organization of every respectful relationship—such as those between family members, amongst the society as a whole, and with regard to plants and animals. Through story-telling, other aboriginal communities as well as non-Indigenous peoples will come to appreciate this fascinating culture.
