Abstract

A celebration of a traditional and contemporary Aboriginal family system Moort is the latest scholarly publication to emerge from the Kurongkurl Katitjin, Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research, Edith Cowan University, Perth. Combining Aboriginal (particularly Nyoongar) and Western perspectives both through its authorship and research, Moort provides an in-depth account of the survival and dynamism of Nyoongar family-related and cultural practices in the face of colonisation and subsequent government policies relating to Indigenous Australians. The book features commentary from a number of Nyoongar participants as part of its exploration of moort in contemporary Nyoongar societies.
