Welcome to Country

An Aboriginal ceremony of Welcome to Country is depicted for the first time in a stunning board book from two Indigenous Australians. 

Welcome to the lands of the Wurundjeri people. The people are part of the land, and the land is a part of them. Aboriginal communities across Australia have boundaries that are defined by mountain ranges and waterways. Traditionally, to cross these boundaries, permission is required. Each community has its own way of greeting, but the practice shares a common name: a Welcome to Country.

Aunty Joy Murphy Wandin, the senior Aboriginal elder of the Wurundjeri people, channels her passion for storytelling into a remarkable and utterly unique picture book, inviting readers to discover some of the history and traditions of her people. Indigenous artist Lisa Kennedy depicts the Wurundjeri Welcome to Country in beautiful paintings rich with blues and browns, as full of wonder and history as the tradition they depict.
