It comes from Australian Indigenous leaders and speaks of their traditional and contemporary ways of living. Elders is a series of chapters authored by clan and tribal leaders from around Australia. Each chapter describes an important aspect of contemporary Indigenous life, and the Elders speak on behalf of their clans - explaining what rituals they hold to, what understandings of the world they have. They speak about subjects such as healing, the land, hunting, gathering, family, law and lore, spirit, the sea, ceremony and song. 

  • The book's transcript was recorded by Peter McChonchie, who has travelled to the far reaches of the continent to listen and to record what Elders have to say to us all. They speak simply and with power, and his visually stunning photography supports their words.

    Elders is a book that will appeal to the wildest possible audience. It is the most representative account of Aboriginal people's lives, culture and beliefs in book form.

Learning from the Wisdom of First Nations Elders

What a fabulous book. We should have been listening to First Nations peoples for hundreds of years. There is so much wisdom and thought provoking insights into life in this book.

So far so good

To be honest I only perused the book as it was for a gift but for what I saw it seemed very interesting and pictures were quite beautiful.

The teas on the other hand , I ordered a fair few different types and the ones I have been drinking ( detox , relax , inflammation ) are DELICIOUS and effective , as much as you can ask of a tea to be. I was a bit worried about the quantity in the jar ( low quantity for the price ) but turns out it's actually quite a lot and the flavours are strong enough to make the jar last a while. I would even go as far as suggesting putting less , at least in the glass jars ( or bigger jars ) . It is a bit of a gymnastic getting the tea out without making a bit of a mess as they are so packed.

Thanks
