Nginingawila Ngirramini – Our Story


"Stories of sacred places highlight the connection and appreciation of their country as well as enticing readers to visit the stunning Tiwi Islands north of Darwin" - Dr Anita Heiss

Nginingawila Ngirramini – Tiwi language – for 'Our Story' was written by nine students from Tiwi College (Tiwi Islands, NT) with Anita Heiss and Pamela Freeman. The book is a celebration of these girls' lives. It traces their heroes, sacred places, and happiest memories. 

The book was developed as part of ILF's Create Initiative, in collaboration with Hachette Australia. It was made possible by a donation from the Norman Family Bequest in honour of Matt Richell.
