About Karu: Growing up Gurindji

We are delighted to present authors Violet Wadrill, Biddy Wavehill, Topsy Ngarnjal and Felicity Meakins for a special presentation of their bi-lingual book, Karu: Growing up Gurindji. This fascinating book is about Indigenous childrearing practices, both spiritual as well as the pragmatic, but always deeply embedded in an understanding of country and family connections. Karu: Growing up Gurindji celebrates children growing up Gurindji, and honours those Gurindji mothers, grandmothers, assistant teachers and health workers who dedicate their lives to making that possible.
