Description

A delightful story, created by Aboriginal students from the south coast of New South Wales, it tells of the lives of the Bittangabee tribe. Beautifully illustrated with the help of local primary school children, the story follows Ninima and his family on their long summer journey into the mountains to collect
Bogong moths, and then home again to the sea. The story highlights the importance of family and kinship in Aboriginal culture, and beautifully
captures the intimate knowledge of plant and animal relationships that Aboriginal people possessed. The story has a strong environmental and cultural message for students.
