    What it means to be an Aboriginal person.

    Margaret Kemarre Turner OAM is a proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

    These responsible relationships are her primary motivation to document for younger Aboriginal people, alongside her student and alert Barry McDonald Perrurle, her cultured understanding of the deep intertwining roots that hold all Australian Aboriginal people.

    Margaret Kemarre's knowledge comes through her own Akarre language, though it is in Arrente that she shares this generous giving of her profound world view.
    The translations between Arrernte and English are facilitated through the respectful relationship she shares with her niece veronica Perrurle Dobson.

    • Margaret was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 1997 for service to the Aboriginal community of Central Australia, particularly through preserving language and culture, and interpreting.
    • Margaret lays the knowledge foundations for an enhanced and extended dialogue, so that 'two cultures can hold each other'.
