Wandihnu and the Old Dugong by Elizabeth Wymarra

Book Description

A contemporary story about a young girl who has grown up in the city and who is to return to Badu Island to stay with her aka (grandmother). It is time for Wandihnu to learn about the customs and culture of her people who come from the Torres Strait. This morality tale highlights the importance of listening to your elders. Wandihnu learns a great lesson when she refuses to learn Kala Lagaw Ya, her native Torres Strait language. When her aka becomes sick Wandihnu is required to get medicinal oil from the old dugong to heal her. But the old dugong won't listen, he only speaks Kala Lagaw Ya. If only Wandihnu had paid attention...
