Summary

Is more than just a picture book, it also relates the history, and describes the lifestyle culture and art of the Tiwi. Like most indigenous people, the Tiwi are struggling to adapt to the modern world whilst still retaining their own identity and culture. The period covered by this book has been especially traumatic.
