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.

Great products

I love their tea’s and have been drinking them for a while. The new tins are super cute and feel like good quality. Their customer service is wonderful and postage was very fast even during the Christmas rush. If I could give 10 stars I would.

Profound and remarkable

What an extraordinary book! This is one of the very best books that I have ever read. This book is far from superficialities and each healer takes you deep into the roots of healing; their stories are so insightful. This provides an extraordinary view on the richness and sophistication of Indigenous Australian culture. Amazingly, although it is not described in this book, there are similarities between healing practices of Indigenous Australians and those of traditional European healers. Unfortunately, Europeans have largely forgotten about their own traditional healers and Indigenous Australians are showing the way with this book! May this wonderful book revive the art and science of traditional healing across human cultures.
