Dear all.. I visited Nyanda in last week. I was taken a thorough personal care by Madonna, James, Isaac and their family. It was an awesome experience. I was here to interact with aboriginal people to know their past and present. I am an Anthropologist from India, who learnt from books about the way anthropologists explores Australian Aboriginals. My visit to Nyanda broke many of my myths. They gave me several insights. I enjoyed the bush foods, which James so fondly explained to me, taking me from one plant and tree to the other. I had a hands on experience with the tools they used in hunting, fishing etc. I had a brief experience of body painting, which , I learnt, was a very significant event in the Yuggara rites of passage. I loved the landscape and the lake there., which has so much of underwater flora and fauna. More than anything else I was astonished by the story of their Ethnocide and how they struggle to know their roots. The problems they are encountering in the present in every walk of life, the feel of disillusionment and being cheated. It was a real heartening experience. I thank you all , the Nyanda team for giving this very memorable time and feel in Australia. I am going back to India with New thoughts and understanding of the aboriginals. Thanks so much.
