The AIATSIS map of Indigenous Australia attempts to represent all the language and tribal or nation groups of the Aboriginal people of Australia. The printed map is available in three sizes - A0, A1 and A3. It is double-sided; the back of the map includes a list of groups and regions, with alternative spellings.
Really great and helpful service over the phone, pick up was super easy and the map is beautiful. Love it
As a Ngiyampaa Mayi, I am so pleased to see and read this. I've been reading it everyday. I'm the farthest thing from a linguist but even i'm able to make sense of it. Seeing words in there that Nan (Margaret Kelly from Menindee) used to use gives such an incredible feeling. Thanks AIATSIS!
I bought one to frame and one to keep in my car so I always know what country i'm on when travelling. I'm so happy these maps exist! Thank you
Great map. Thoroughly satisfied. Thanks .
It is important to understand our past to understand our future - this book adds to this knowledge
Yet again, another wonderful publication available from AIATSIS - love this map!
This book is incredible - and SO important for everyone in the Sydney area to read!
i am so happy with this :)
The prpcess of buying and paying was simple and it was delivered a few days later. Def cant complain.
Great design, layout and great for educating people.
Really cool map, great purchase
Thankyou to authors for collating such a book. I find it very useful & enables me to get a better understanding of my husbands people’s language
walawaani Congratulations on a wonderful, interesting and informative book. I am thoroughly enjoying trying to teach myself a little bit of Dhurga language, even though I am non-indigenous. Thank you!
Quick delivery and great quality and packaging. Love it.
Fast shipment and amazing quality map for such a bargain price. Got the A0 size!
So happy to have this book. User friendly and beautifully laid out for clarity and easy navigation, and such an important resource. Congratulations to all the team involved.
Great service - arrived within 3 days (from memory) during a pandemic no less! Absolutely beautiful - something I have wanted for years.
Good quality and got one for me and another as a gift
Fantastic effort in getting this valuable resource published. THANK YOU.
Quick postage. Arrived in perfect condition. Every home should have one.
A great introduction to the first nations people
Well done to Patricia Ellis, Kerry Boyenga & Waine Donovan on the publication of the Dhurga Dictionary! This resource was much needed and will provide our people with basic Dhurga literacy for years to come.
Love the map and I bought 3 as presents - one for my partner who just got Australian citizenship, one for a cartographer friend, and one for my sister. So far I have given 2 out of the 3 and they've been very gratefully received. They arrived in great condition in a tube. It took a little longer than I hoped but I put that down to the current pandemic situation!
We are delighted to have the Dhurga dictionary at Braidwood Preschool, and give our congratulations to Patricia, Kerry and Waine & team!
Only a few years ago, it was very difficult to find accurate information on the Dhurga language. Now, the children can learn Dhurga words and teach them to their families - such an amazing way for these children to develop respect and knowledge of Dhurga language and Yuin Culture.
Product was just as expected, ordering was easy and delivery prompt
Efficient, extremely fast & careful packing, despatching & delivery I have ever received.
Parcel in perfect condition inside & out!
Thank you so much to the team you have.
What an outstanding publication!
I have been fascinated by it's contents since I purchased a copy at the launch.
Congratulations to Patricia, Kerry and Waine and all associated with this publication. I have learned so much about the language and its structure through studying this book. It is an excellent reference point for anyone interested in Aboriginal language and in particular the Dhurga language. It is an exemplar for other language groups on which to base any publication of their language.
This book should be on the school curriculum, it captures so many layers of social history and the colonial experience in a well-written, deeply researched account of the cultural importance and eventual politicisation of abalone before and after colonisation.
The dictionary represents decades of painstaking work and consultation by the authors, Kerry Bournda, Waine Donovan and Patricia Ellis to revitalise the Dhurga language, with input from linguists the local community. Beautifully put together, it is a very valuable guide.
I ordered the medium sized map which was quite large enough. It was delivered very quickly in excellent condition.
A brilliant book about a little known chapter of Aboriginal urban and regional activism albeit with a devastating kick back by the government Of the day
I recently ordered this In size A1 and framed it with a white frame. It’s just beautiful up on the wall in our son’s bedroom. I was particularly impressed with the customer service as I had initially ordered an A0 but couldn’t find a frame and when I emailed the team exchanged my order promptly and sent out the A1 instead.
The poster is exactly what I expected and I'm so happy with the product. Recommend this to anyone looking for a map of the continent. The packaging protected the poster perfectly without excess waste.
