For countless generations, coastal country in the west Kimberley region of northwest Australia has been the home of Dambeemangaddee Traditional Owners. Barddabardda Wodjenangorddee- We're Telling All of You describes the deep history of this country. In it our senior people describe our country's creation during Lalai and provide recollections of our ancestors' lives.The book also draws on archival sources and information Dambeemangaddee people had shared with early missionaries and anthropologists, while incorporating cultural knowledge our senior people have imparted over the past four decades to the book's compilers and authors. The result is a book that contains an unprecedented level of detail regarding our history, culture and country- the Aboriginal names of some three hundred ancestors, many born in the mid-1800s; their connections to country and to each other; their responses to the arrival of explorers, missionaries and others in our country; and their often heroic efforts to sustain our traditions and care for our country despite outsiders' attempts to regulate their lives and displace them from our lands.
