Nganga (ng gar na): To see and understand.

Aunty, Uncle, sorry business, deadly, women's business, marngrook, dreamtime, Elders, songlines. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander words have become part of our everyday vocabulary but we may not know their true meaning of the word or where the words come from.

In Nganga, Aunty Fay Muir and Sue Lawson have brought together these words, their meanings and their history. Engage with the rich and unique culture of Aboriginal Australians through this authoritative and concise collection.

A great guide to Aboriginal language


This is a beautifully written book that really simply provides definitions for many of the Aboriginal words or terms used to describe Aboriginal people, places or things. The descriptions are simple yet elegantly written and give a basic understanding for the meanings or origins of words, many of which are in common use in Australia. This is the kind of book that should be on every coffee table and in every workplace, so that people can at least start to build their knowledge of Aboriginal culture within Australia as we are a sadly uneducated mob when it comes to the first people of this land.
