Yellamundie: Voices & Faces of First Nations People in Sydney
In the Dharug language, yellamundie means ‘storyteller’.
Yellamundie is for all Australians, and while many of the stories contain sad elements, they are reflections of a beautiful culture that is still strong today, told in the words of the contributors, the co-authors. It is their truth.
This is a place to hear the stories of many different people from different places and who have walked different journeys.
This collection of stories from 30 of Sydney’s Indigenous people will bring all Australians closer to the truth about the impact that colonisation has had on our First Nations people and how that impact continues today.
For Ages: 13 - 18 years old
For Grades: 07 - 12
