Welcome to Country


Lisa Kennedy

Author: Aunty Joy Murphy
Illustrator: Lisa Kennedy
Publisher: Walker Books

This is an expansive and generous Welcome to Country from a most respected Elder, Aunty Joy Murphy, beautifully given form by Indigenous artist Lisa Kennedy.
Welcome to Country is a welcome to the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People.
I drew from my own connections and relationships to Wurundjeri country where I grew up as a child near the Maribynong River and places where my children were born close to the Yarra river in later years.
I went back to some of those special places to listen to the spirits of the Ancestors and the land.
I wanted to find how they wanted to be portrayed and what they wanted to say.
Lisa Kennedy
