Gurindji is a traditional language of the Victoria River District in the Northern Territory (Australia). Gurindji people became well known in the 1960-70s due to their influence on Australian politics and the Indigenous land rights movement. They were instrumental in gaining equal wages for Aboriginal cattle station employees and they were also the first Aboriginal group to recover control of their traditional lands.

The Gurindji to English Dictionary contains Gurindji words with English translations, illustrations, and detailed encyclopaedic information about plants, animals and cultural practices. Also included is a guide to Gurindji grammar and an English index.

This volume is ideal for both beginners and advanced speakers of Gurindji, for translators and interpreters, and for anyone interested in learning more about Gurindji language and culture.
