First Edition. For tens of thousands of years the Yolngu people of Arnhem Land, on the strikingly beautiful northern coast of Australia, have lived a life rich in culture and tradition. Intimately connected to the land, Yolngu daily existence has revolved around hunting, gathering, fishing and ceremony.Much of that ancient way of life remains today and has been captured for this book through the extraordinary lens of Peter McConchie, who lived for six months on the Gove Peninsula with the Yolngu people. The result is a view of their life from the inside. Aboriginal Spirit: Yolngu Mali includes text transcribed from stories told by Yolngu people, and is a superb evocation of a unique and profound culture. pp. 116 iluusts #0219 Photography
