Angkitja (Jukurrpa) Aboriginal Art (Soft Cover) Diary 2019
Cover Artwork - KANPA (2017) by Myrtle Pennington
For many years IAD Press have very successfully used the imprint 'Jukurrpa Books' - Jukurrpa is a Warlpiri word meaning 'Dreaming', Story' or 'Law'.
The Institute for Aboriginal Development (IAD) is committed to the promotion of cultural authority and recognition, and as IAD and IAD Press are situated on the banks of the Todd River in the heart of Arrernte country, the Board and their Elders believe that appropriate recognition and deference be given to the people on whose land IAD stands on by changing the imprint to 'Angkitja Books' - Angkitja is the Eastern, Central and Western Arrernte word for "keeping information safe for the future".
In this age when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages and culture are so much under threat, it is appropriate to name the publishing label after a word that means keeping safe - keeping culture safe, keeping language safe. To Warlpiri, Luritja, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunitjatjara friends - thank you for allowing the use of your language for so many years and pay homage to the Elders both past and present who have allowed this.
