Songlines: First Knowledges for younger readers

AU$ 24.95

Margo Neale and Lynne Kelly

How do you find your way around, get your food and drink, connect with your friends and family? How do you know the right and safe way to do things, or how to make things? Before the white people came to the continent, all Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples knew how to do all these things – and much, much more.

This Younger Readers adaptation of Songlines comes from the critically acclaimed, best-selling First Knowledges series, with striking illustrations by Archibald winner Blak Douglas.

Description

Margo Ngawa Neale and Lynne Kelly invite you on a journey through the oldest, biggest library of knowledge on Earth. This knowledge isn’t held in books: you will find it in Songlines of the land, sea and sky.

Learn about history, art, song, science and more in this engaging and inviting introduction to Indigenous traditional knowledges, how they apply today and how they can help all people thrive into the future.

About the series: Each book is a collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous writers and editors; the series is edited by Margo Neale, senior Indigenous curator at the National Museum of Australia.
