The book provides the Wiradjuri text for the film, a word for word translation and a free flowing English translation with full colour images from Wiradjuri Country. It describes in detail aspects of the Wiradjuri lifestyle based on Yindyamarra. The film Yindyamarra Yambuwan: A film in Wiradjuri Language is drawn from three years of conversations with Wiradjuri Elders, Yindyamarra bala Yambuwan – “Yindyamarra is everything” was the sentiment shared by every Wiradjuri Elder involved. The film is centred on over 20 poems in Wiradjuri language, with video from Wiradjuri country, exploring some of the many aspects of Yindyamarra. Yindyamarra is often translated as respect, but actually it describes the whole Wiradjuri way of Life.
