ISBN 9781921953293

Landmark publication developed in close co-operation with the traditional owners of the Seven Sisters Songlines which stretch across Australia.

This major collaborative cultural production in which traditional owners share aspects of their culture grew out of long-term relationships with traditional custodians.

Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters explores the history and meaning of songlines, the Dreaming or creation tracks that crisscross the Australian continent. The Seven Sisters songline is one of the most extensive, tracing complex pathways of spiritual, ecological, economic, cultural, and ontological knowledge. These are the stories ‘written in the land’.

The result of years of research and collaboration with knowledge custodians, traditional owners, and artists. Rich in Aboriginal voices and stories. Features images of paintings, rock art, sculptures and stunning photography of artists, performers, and the Western and Central desert landscapes.
