Laklak Burarrwanga is a Datiwuy Elder, Caretaker for Gumatj, and eldest sister. As a teacher at Bawaka in north-east Arnhem Land, she has spent decades sharing her knowledge with the children of her community. Tourists and government staff and visitors from all walks of life have also learnt much from Laklak and her family. Laklak's co-authors in Welcome to My Country are her sisters and daughter (Ritjilili Ganambarr, Merrkiyawuy Ganambarr, Banbapuy Ganambarr, Djawundil Maymuru), and academics Sarah Wright, Sandie Suchet-Pearson and Kate Lloyd, who have been adopted into the family. They have worked together since 2006, and completed two books and several articles.
