Thanakupi's Guide to Language & Culture
Cover notes: "Thanakupi's Guide to Language and Culture
undertakes the important work of recording Thancoupie's own language,
Thaynakwith. Thancoupie brings the language alive. Through her
commentaries, stories, descriptions and drawings she transports us
directly into the rich culture of the Thaynakwith people of Cape York.
Thancoupie is internationally renowned for her ceramics, in which she connects the stories of her people to her art. In this book she makes that connection through language, recognising the importance of this knowledge for future generations.
This culturally significant book brings together language, stories and beautiful illustrations, describing the rich culture, the diverse sea and land creatures and the plants of Cape York, North Queensland."
