by NPY Women's Council Aboriginal Corporation

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.

Traditional healers of the Central Desert Ngangkari

A wonderful book which really celebrates the Indigenous approach to healing using energy techniques. As an energy worker myself, i would so love to have the opportunity to work with them. A pleasure to read

I felt I was with each healer for a bit. The photos of them are beautiful and you sense a long line of ancestors behind them. A cherished book.
