Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This finely textured ethnography weaves written texts with the voices of women and men who struggle to protect their sacred sites. It provides a deeper understanding of lives profoundly affected by two centuries of colonization.

Synopsis:

In the 1980s, Diane Bell's Daughters of the Dreaming brought the richness of Central Australian Aboriginal women's religious lives into sharp focus: women had sacred sites, songs, and rituals. Women were to be included in land claims and law reform. In Ngarindjerri Wurruwarrin, She presents a finely textured ethnographic portrait of a very different Aboriginal culture. Or is it? Missionaries and assimilation have taken their toll. Anthropolo-gists have written of the Ngarrindjeri in the past tense; only memory remains. Diane Bell finds otherwise.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 647-672) and index.
