Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the complex, ritual preparation and distribution of a kangaroo, to the simplicity of enjoying the sweet nectar dripping from a corkwood blossom, Bush Foods describes the traditional foods of the Arrernte of Central Australia. Margaret Kemarre Turner, a respected Arrernte woman, reveals in her own language a resourceful people with an intimate knowledge of their country. Her words are illustrated by Shawn Dobson, a talented young Arrernte artist. As well as providing valuable cultural information, Bush Foods can be used as a resource for language learners.

About the Author

Margaret Kemarre was born at Harts Range, to the north-east of Alice Springs, in 1938, and lived there until she was about eleven or twelve. She then spent a few years each at the Catholic mission at Arltunga and at Mt Riddock, before moving back to the Catholic mission which had by then been re-located to Santa Teresa (Ltyentye Apurte). She lived for a number of years in the girls' dormitory there under the charge of the nuns, before marrying in 1961. She has lived mostly in Alice Springs since the mid-seventies. She is very active in community work, and has worked over many years at the Institute for Aboriginal Development where she has taught Arrernte language to adults and has been a major contributor to the Arandic Languages Dictionaries Program.
