Rate this:
Gagudju Man contains the words of Bill Neidjie, traditional owner of the Bunitj clan lands in the north of Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory. One of the last speakers of the Gagudju language, and custodian of a wealth of traditional knowledge, Neidjie describes a culture that depends for its very survival on a deep level of knowledge and respect for the environment. This book is a passionate plea to preserve the natural ecosystems of his own country through the ability to feel the messages of the land and understand how interdependent we are with our environment. These messages are from a man in his eighties who well remembers the way of life before western man brought completely different environmental values to his country. The beautiful photographs capture the magnificence of his land in Kakadu. Gagudju Man has an important place in the history and philosophy of Australia today.
