    Description

    Mowanjum Aboriginal Community decided to share their stories and Wandjina traditions in this lively and richly illustrated book. It tells of their journey from their homelands in the north Kimberley to Derby where Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunambal peoples established Mowanjum Community in 1956. Historical photographs were selected by senior men and women for the stories they tell, and to rescue them from the anonymity of archives thousands of kilometres from their community. Songs, myths, stories and poems from past. and present community members have been combined with over 100 photographic images of contemporary community members. The book is a commemoration of the strength of spirit of past community members and an expression of confidence in the future.
