Notes

Anpernirrentye (un-BURN-erin-ja) is the system of family relationships that is at the heart of the culture of the Arrernte people of Central Australia. This book describes the ways family and culture have connected people to each other, to their land, an4d to their Dreamings since the time of creation. Because we are related in these ways, we treat each other with respect.
