by Peter McConchie

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.

Being a USA citizen, I see the plight of the indigenous people of Australia and the Americas as very similar. Hopefully we can learn to respect the Earth before it is too late.

A beautiful tea

Whilst the tea did not make me sleepy on first try, it was certainly a delight to drink and would be an aid to relaxation with consistent use. It has a beautiful fragrance, is thoughtfully packaged and does not have a strong tannin taste. I am happy with it, and hope to experience the desired sleep improvement as I use it more.
