Phys. Description 65 items
Note Kadjina Aboriginal Community is located just over 100km south of Fitzroy Crossing next to Millijiddee Station. Wulungarra School has been operating as an independent school in Kadjina since 1997 and has helped community members to produce a number of books in English, Walmajarri and Kriol. These books are part of a larger partnership between the school and the community which promotes Walmajarri culture, language and art as a way of maintaining and strengthening knowledge.
Summary This collection includes 65 stories from Kadjina Aboriginal Community written and illustrated by children, teenagers and adults. The books were written in English, Walmajarri and Kriol between 1998 and 2002 by the Wulungarra School’s Literature Production Centre. Please be aware that this collection may contain images, artwork, perspectives and stories from people who are now deceased. The collection also contains words, terms or descriptions which may be culturally sensitive and are considered inappropriate today, but which reflect the period in which they were written.
Note In Walmajarri some stories also include English
