Yindyamarra Yambuwan. As part of NAIDOC week, this beautiful new full colour book, along with its companion film, will be launched at Wagga Wagga City Library. Special guests will include Aunty Flo Grant, Dr Uncle Stan Grant Sr AM, and Prof Emeritus Stephen Kemmis.
Yindyamarra Yambuwan, the film and the book, are about the Wiradjuri way of life, centred on the concept of Yindyamarra. Yindyamarra is often translated as ‘respect’, but it has several meanings including to give honour, go slow, and take responsibility.
The book also features short essays on Yindyamarra, the importance of language, and how the project was made from Aunty Flo Grant, Dr Uncle Stan Grant Sr and Dr Bernard Sullivan.
Yindyamarra Yambuwan is accessible to the general reader, even if they are unfamiliar with Wiradjuri, and is an essential resource for those who wish to go deeper into Wiradjuri language and culture.
Copies of the book and film will be available for purchase.
