Pacifica : myth, magic, and traditional wisdom from the South Sea Islands by Nadine Amadio( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Story-telling is one of the great enchantments of life. Pacifica: Myth, Magic and Traditional Wisdom from the South Sea Islands brings us the tales told by the people of the Pacific Islands. Stories of mystery, of everyday magic, and of the powering force of myth." "The existence of myth, of traditional wisdom, in any part of the world is our most precious heritage. Myth was the creative act of the Pacific people. It was so powerful and meaningful, and so in tune with their natural environment, that it profoundly affected every stage of their life. Here, amid settings of astounding natural beauty, many people still live traditional lives and still remember, even live by, the myths that have guided their past." "In spite of its great geographical age and its ancient traditional past, the South Pacific is also the 'new world', the world of promise, of the future. It is a place experiencing great change. Some of these changes will bring new life and energy to the people of the Pacific. Some will bring a deep sense of loss to them, and indirectly to all of us." "All through the Pacific there is a new awareness of a world being lost. The Pacific people are fighting to preserve and renew their traditional past, celebrated in this book in a feast of stories and stunning photographs. Nadine Amadio and John Tristram, with Juniper Films, spent two years filming in the islands of the South Pacific, gathering the stories and images presented here and in the television series Pacifica: Tales from the South Seas. Both book and series pay magnificent tribute to the rich and fascinating heritage of the Pacific people."--Jacket

Black angels : a widening vision by Gordon Bennett( Visual )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Centres on the life and work of young Brisbane artist, Gordon Bennett, who is emerging as one of this country's leading indigenous artists. In 1991 his compelling painting, The Nine Ricochets: fall down black fella, jump up white fella, won him the prestigious Moet and Chandon Art Fellowship. The program is about the opening up of perception in the world today as Bennett asks us in his disturbing and exciting paintings to recognise that there is another view of history. Bennett, in his art, is helping make us aware of black history and of the suffering that is caused by limited perceptions. The film follows Bennett's journeys to Europe and to the sites of Aboriginal rock art. It also follows his emotional and creative journey as he comes to terms with his Aboriginality and his perceptions of Aboriginal history
