What do the artistic works of acclaimed author Tim Winton and
eminent Ngarinyin lawman Bungal (David) Mowaljarlai have in common?
According to Hannah Rachel Bell they both reflect sacred
relationship with the natural world, the biological imperative of a
male rite of passage, an emergent urban tribalism, and the
fundamental role of story in the transmission of cultural
knowledge. In Bell's four decade friendship with Mowaljarlai, she
had to confront the cultural assumptions that sculpted her way of
seeing. The journey was life-changing. When she returned to
teaching in 2001 Tim Winton's novels featured in the curriculum.
She recognised an eerie familiarity and thought Winton must have
been influenced by traditional elders to express such an
'indigenous' perspective. She wrote to him. This resulted in 4
years of correspondence and an excavation of converging world views
- exposed through personal memoir, letters, paintings and
conversations and culminating in Storymen.
