The book presents how Yolngu Indigenous people in the Northeast Arnhem Land, Australia, have responded to neo colonial challenges by continuing to affirm their political autonomy and transmit ‘Yolngu Law’ – ways of knowing and being with – to the younger generations as well as in dealing with non indigenous institutions, through modes of participation of bodies, language, things, images of movement and notions of mutual care, feelings and accountability. Redefining the notion performance as intra-active co-becomings, Yolngu relational ontology and epistemology are explored in the contexts of everyday practices, ritual ceremonies, bicultural education, vernacular Christianity and the production of popular music.

Abstract

The book presents how Yolngu Indigenous people in the Northeast Arnhem Land, Australia, have responded to neo colonial challenges by continuing to affirm their political autonomy and transmit ‘Yolngu Law’ – ways of knowing and being with – to the younger generations as well as in dealing with non indigenous institutions, through modes of participation of bodies, language, things, images of movement and notions of mutual care, feelings and accountability. Redefining the notion performance as intra-active co-becomings, Yolngu relational ontology and epistemology are explored in the contexts of everyday practices, ritual ceremonies, bicultural education, vernacular Christianity and the production of popular music.
