This is the story of Moses Tjalkabota, an Aranda man and the first Aboriginal pastor of Central Australia. It is based on Moses' autobiography, and written by Peter Latz who grew up with Moses, speaks Aranda, and provides the context to help build greater love and understanding.
Land, kinship and people hold country together. Kinship connects everything together, kinship is the roots and veins of land and life. Language is the custodian and soul of the land. Language identifies who you are, what we do. Elders hold sacredness of the land. This is true for every Aboriginal community.
