Ninu: Grandmother’s Law


Out of stock

Nura Nungalka Ward told her story because she wanted young Aboriginal people to know the world she had grown up in. A world that is slowly being forgotten.

Nura shares intimate stories of how life was for Aboriginal people of Central Australia before and after white contact; from complicated marriage arrangements, to complex preparations of bush medicines, from station and health work to political activism. Superb archival images further detail Nura’s extraordinary life.

Translated to English from Pitjantjatjara, Ninu: Grandmother’s Law is as important to the young Aboriginal people she spoke to, as it will be to all Australians.
