• Healers of Arnhem Land by John Cawte

    For two decades (1970 to 1990), Professor John Cawte annually visited the Yolngu clan of northeast Arnhem Land. During this time he recorded, with the clan leader s' permission, traditional medicinal knowledge, and healing scenes were specially enacted and photographed. This information is now presented publicly for the first time in Healers Of Arnhem Land. In an attempt to span the gulf between European and Australian Aboriginal cultures, and to encourage tolerance and understanding, Healers Of Arnhem Land presents anxieties and distress as intriguing mysteries, threats and challenges that confront both cultures. Excellent second-hand condition.
