Summary

Gurindji country is located in the southern Victoria River in NT. In Karu, Gurindji women describe their child-rearing practices. Many Gurindji ways of raising children contrast with non-Indigenous practices because they are deeply embedded in an understanding of country and family connections. This book celebrates children growing up Gurindji and honours those Gurindji mothers, grandmothers, assistant teachers and health workers who dedicate their lives to making that possible.
