Summary

The first part of this publication consists of stories from Ntaria/Hermannsburg about the ways in which they are dealing with grief, the 'grog' (alcohol), and other community hardships. These stories have since been shared with other communities and some of the messages that have been returned are also included here. The second part explains the principles informing this project and introduces new concepts in relation to collective narrative practice. Drawing on narrative ideas and the work of Paulo Freire, Sharon Welch, and Hilde Lindemann Nelson, this extended essay will be relevant to those responding to social suffering.

The CD which accompanies this publication contains a selection of stories and songs from Ntaria/Hermannsburg as well as messages from Chile, Norway, and the USA.
