Old Mans story shares the remarkable story of one of Australias most respected elders and traditional land owners, Big Bill Neidjie. This new title from Aboriginal Studies Press is available from 1 July 2015. The last remaining speaker of Gaagudju language, Neidjie was committed to sharing his story with future generations as well as educating the wider community about Aboriginal culture, even breaking tradition to do so. He was instrumental in the establishment of Kakadu National Park (along with allowing public access) and its inclusion onto the UNESCO World Heritage list. Before his passing in 2002, over a period of two years Neidjie allowed photographer Mark Lang the rare opportunity to record his thoughts which explore his views on culture, family, community and country, offering beautifully nuanced stories in his own words and rhythms. These stories are accompanied by Langs stunning landscape photographs of the locations the old man speaks about. Structured in the cycle of the seasons, Old Mans story provides readers with insights into the annual transformation of landscape that were so integral to Neidjies life story.
Told with great affection and respect for country, Old Mans story is an important read for those seeking to learn more about Indigenous history and culture, and to understanding the significance of living on and looking after country.
