Description - Listen to Ngarrindjeri Women Speaking by Diane Bell

"Namawi rawul-inyeri thulun-ar: Our footprints [come] from the past. From our ancestors to us, we are the traditional owners, still guiding our young ones, connecting the Stolen Generations back to family and country, standing strong in our history and culture and heritage", announce these remarkable Ngarrindjeri miminar. Ngarrindjeri came to prominence in the 1990s with the Hindmarsh Island Bridge affair. Labelled "liars" in 1995 by a South Australian Royal Commission then vindicated in the Federal Court in 2001 as "truth-tellers", these Ngarrindjeri miminar have much to be angry about. But, they also have stories to tell about their lives and their visions for the future. Here they take us into their world of caring for their country, their families and their nation. What are our needs? What do we want to address our needs? Where are we going? What does the future hold for us, our children, our grandchildren, our young women? Their stories will charm and delight and their stories will jar and shock. They ask that you Kungun, listen, to their Yunnan, speaking.
