“Tree of Life: Growing up Strong Children – Borroloola Way” is a collection of unearthed stories that was co-created with the women of Borroloola, a remote community in the Gulf of Carpentaria in Northern Territory. It shares their wisdom on parenting skills, knowledges, beliefs, and abilities to grow their children up strong, and the history of this wisdom from their family and community.
The stories were compiled by the Indi Kindi team during Tree of Life workshops, facilitated by Sudha Coutinho and Lucy Van Sambeek from Telling Story and supported by Artback NT. The women met during the time of COVID-19 when they were unable to go on Country to yarn together. Instead, they connected with the facilitators on the internet.
