Mali'Buku-RunanmaramSix years of research into the recorded history of the Yolngu people comes home today with the launch of a book of historic photographs compiled by the University of Sydney’s first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research fellow, Dr Joe Gumbula.

Mali’Buku-Runanmaram: Images from Milingimbi and surrounds, 1926-1948 (Darlington Press and the University of Sydney Archives, 2012) brings Dr Gumbula’s people treasured images, among the earliest in existence, of Yolngu traditions and mission life. Most of the book’s 380 photographs, housed in the University Archives, have never been viewed by either Yolngu or the wider public.
