Pintupi Country, Pintupi Self: Sentiment, Place, and Politics among Western Desert Aborigines

Fred R Myers

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    The Pintupi, a hunting-and-gathering people of Australia's Western Desert, were among the last Aborigines to come into contact with white society. Despite their extended relocation in central Australian settlements, they have managed to preserve much of their traditional culture and social organization. This book presents a comprehensive ethnographic interpretation of the ways in which Pintupi politics, cosmology, kinship systems, nomadic patterns, and social values reinforce and sometimes contradict each other
