"James Gaykamangu is a Senior Elder with the Gupapuyngu Tribe from Arnhem Land. He is a Senior Law Man, Peacemaker and Mediator under Traditional Law. James was educated in both the traditional Yolngu system and the missionary system. He has multiple higher education qualifications and currently works in the Northern Territory. His life has been a journey of finding ways to build bridges between two vastly different systems. In this book he tells the story of his learning journey from a young boy in Milingimbi with inherited traditional leadership, to a senior elder supporting his people through mainstream legal systems"---back cover.
