It is customary amongst Marri Amu and Marri Tjevin, and other Aboriginal groups not to use the name or image of a deceased person for a period following their passing. Deceased authors are indicated by the cross symbol, and users of this book should show caution in displaying the images or saying the names of the deceased as it may cause sadness and distress for family members.
Includes bibliography: pages 262-263 and indexes.
"This book tells the Marri Amu and Marri Tjevin story of plant and animal knowledge. This knowledge is ancient, detailed and complex. It has been part of the north Australian landscape for thousands of generations. Keeping this knowledge strong is a key responsibility of Marri Amu and Marri Tejvin Elders. "--Back cover.
