Carol Kngwarraye Turner reads from her story in Arelhekenhe Angkentye – Women’s Talk: Poems of Lyapirtneme from Arrernte Women in Central Australia.

‘Lyapirtneme is an Arrernte word that means growing back, returning. It’s like if a bushfire went through the land, and all the trees burnt down, and the roots underground are still alive. When the rain comes you see little shoots growing out of the bottom of the tree, growing back again.’

— Therese Perrurle Ryder, Arrernte Elder
