Traditional Healers of the Central Desert contains unique stories and imagery and primary source material: the ngangkari speak directly to the reader. Ngangkari are senior Aboriginal people authorised to speak publicly about Anangu (Western Desert language speaking Aboriginal people) culture and practices. It is accurate, authorised information about their work, in their own words.

The practice of traditional healing is still very much a part of contemporary Aboriginal society. The ngangkari currently employed at NPY Women’s Council deliver treatments to people across a tri-state region of about 350,000 sq km, in more than 25 communities in SA, WA and NT. Acknowledged, respected and accepted these ngangkari work collaboratively with hospitals and health professionals even beyond this region, working hand in hand with Western medical practitioners.

Highly recommended

Fascinating and beautifully put together book. Amazing to read the personal stories of the healers in their own words. The photography and artwork are superb.

This book was fascinating. Like most of Australia I knew so little about Aboriginal spirituality and healing/medicine, so this book was a real eye opener. The photos are stunning also. so it make s a great gift.
