Jawoyn Plants and Animals records the traditional aboriginal Jawoyn names and uses of almost 600 plants and animals found on Jawoyn country (Nitmiluk National Park and the Katherine area, Northern Territory).
It has been prepared at the instigation of Jawoyn elders as a critical component of joint management of country and the conservation of traditional knowledge.
The book draws on ancient wisdom and is based on field research undertaken since the mid 1970’s by Jawoyn elders, linguists and biologists.
