Mamang was created as part of an Indigenous language recovery project led by Kim Scott and the Wirlomin Noongar Language and Stories Project. From a creation story told to the American linguist Gerhardt Laves at Albany, Western Australia, around 1931 and returned to the Noongar people by his family after his death in the 1980s, the story was workshopped through a series of community meetings involving elders - some of whom told stories to Laves in 1931 - artists and linguists. Artists Jeffrey Farmer, Helen Nelly and Roma Winmar have created stunning illustrations to accompany the testimonial story. Presented in both Noongar and English language, this art book will inspire and delight all ages.
