All sales of this book are final--it is print on demand and may take up to 3 weeks to arrive.
In the Dharug language, yellamundie means 'storyteller'.
This collection of stories from 30 of Sydney's Indigenous people will bring all Australians closer to the truth about the impact that colonisation has had on our First Nations people and how that impact continues today.
Truth Telling is an incredibly important part of our nation's healing. The aim is not to lay blame but rather to acknowledge what has
happened so we can move forward together to a reconciled Australia.
Michelle McGrath is an Irish-Australian who works in Aboriginal education. For a long time she has wanted young Australians to learn the truth about our past, so that they may understand our First Nations people and the pain they still feel today.
This book is for all Australians, and while many of the stories contain sad elements, they are reflections of a beautiful culture that is still strong today, told in the words of the contributors, the co-authors.
It is their truth.
