eBook - 2008
Rate this:
The ways in which indigenous men understand their health and culture are eloquently explored in this evocative examination of Aboriginal life. This accessible meditation uses conversations, stories, and art to demonstrate that kanyirninpa—the cultural value and relationship that has sustained Kimberly desert communities for centuries—may provide hope for change and better health for all. Recognizing vulnerabilities that remain in young indigenous men's lives in a rapidly changing world—sport, substance abuse, and incarceration—this ethnography offers Aboriginal insights into the ways in which kanyirninpa can provide possibilities for lasting improvements to men's health.
