Wilam : A Birrarung Story | Author: Aunty Joy Murphy, Andrew Kelly & Lisa Kennedy
Wilam: A Birrarung Story is one day on a vital, flourishing river. As ngua rises, Bunjil soars over mountain ash, flying higher and higher as the wind warms. Below, Birrarung begins its long winding path down to palem warreen. Wilam – home.
Yarra Riverkeeper Andrew Kelly joins award-winning picture book duo Aunty Joy Murphy and Lisa Kennedy to tell the Indigenous and geographical story of Melbourne's beautiful Yarra River, from its source to its mouth; from its pre-history to the present day.
Joy Murphy Wandin AO is the Senior Aboriginal Elder of the Wurundjeri People of Melbourne and surrounds. We show respect for her and other Elders by calling them Aunty or Uncle. Lisa Kennedy is descendant of the Trawlwoolway People on the north-east coast of Tasmania. Through sense of place she feels connected to the Wurundjeri country and all that entails — the water, the land, the animals and the ancestors. Andrew Kelly is the Yarra Riverkeeper, part of an international organisation of Riverkeepers.
