Elizabeth Ellis publishes her autobiography 'Pictures from my memory: my story as a Ngaatjatjarra woman'

Elizabeth Ellis, an ARC Discovery Indigenous Fellow at the ANU School of Literature Languages and Linguistics, has recent published her autobiography Pictures from my memory: my story as a Ngaatjatjarra woman. Elizabeth is a Ngaatjatjarra educator, interpreter and linguist from the Ngaanyatjarra region of Western Australia.

In this rich and compelling account Elizabeth traces from the first contact between her family and White Australians to her experiences of being part of both her aboriginal community and the western world. The book is preceded by an introduction and followed by an anthropological overview of Ngaatjatjarra culture by anthropologist Laurent Dousset.

This book is available online.
