This work tells the story of how Anangu from five different language groups came to live together at Papunya. From the time of first contact with explorers, missionaries and pastoralists, through to the Papunya art movement and the Warumpi Band, the multi-layered text finally lea...ds us to the development of the unique educational environment that is Papunya School. As an example of two-way learning, it is a profound metaphor for reconciliation. The book is a collaboration involving the staff and students of Papunya School, working together with children's writer Nadia Wheatley and artist Ken Searle. Combining many voices and many hands, it was originally produced as a resource to be used for the Papunya School Curriculum.
