Tiwi: The Life and Art of Australia's Tiwi People

Front Cover
Edition Habit Press, 1996 - Photography - 240 pages
For thousands of years the Tiwi people of Bathurst and Melville islands in northern Australia believed that their two islands composed the entire world. Their geographical isolation has resulted in unique art forms, radically different from those of mainland Aborigines. The Tiwi are a proud and increasingly prosperous people, eager to protect a way of life developed and harmoniously maintained over thousands of years.
