Summary

When the Ngarrindjeri women of South Australia asked Diane Bell if she would work with them in the running of some workshops to develop a booklet about culture and governance, none of them realised quite where it would take them. The Ngarridjeri women of South Australia reveal their thoughts, daily challenges, and visions for the future in this moving book. The stories range from charming and delightful to jarring and shocking, and delve into matters both social and personal—including the Hindmarsh Island bridge controversy. Serving as a model for how indigenous and non-indigenous women can jointly write a book, this narrative can help indigenous women in other communities develop their own collective history and visions for the future.
