My People's Dreaming by Max Dulumunmun Harrison

Book Description

Max Dulumunmun Harrison, or Uncle Max as he is widely known, is an Elder of the Yuin people, who lived throughout the south coast of New South Wales. He has been sharing his cultural knowledge for over 30 years and has taken over 6,000 people from all walks of life onto country, explaining Aboriginal ways and the intricate understandings of the environment. My People's Dreaming is a rare, personal insight into traditional Yuin teachings, and is drawn from extensive interviews with Uncle Max. Through stunning photos and words, Uncle Max reveals the significance of the Creation Dreaming (the story of his people's creation), bush lore, foods, ways of healing, laws, punishment and spirituality. He also details the subtleties and connectedness of his people's relationship to the land, as well as outlining his philosophy of forgiveness.
