Always wanted to know more about Aboriginal Australia? Come on a journey through time with warriors of the enigmatic Fethafoot Clan. For 50,000 years my clan have solved problems for the Australian Heart-rock people. Now for the first time in our history, you too can explore our stories. My Clan’s name and its mysteries have always been kept out of public knowledge and history, in my home of Australia. It’s the way the Clan work. To do what they do, secrecy is a prerequisite to safeguard the work and people. For the first time in our long, oral history, we have a means to reveal the long and intriguing history of our covert Clan to other Australians, to the many new people’s who now call this majestic land home: and to the modern world at large. If you were born in Australia, you may have even heard such stories told around campfires and family meals, about the Australian Aboriginal magic man – or Kadaicha, as our people named our Clan many years ago. We call ourselves: the Fethafoot. During the 10 tales, you’ll find that many of the elder warriors were advanced in spiritual travel and did not travel via ‘shanks pony’ - as walking is often called in Australia. Instead, they used the ancient Dreamtime ‘creation-lines’ running across our country, to move swiftly across their lands. Thus, in a mixture of fear and awe the Clan became known as the Fethafoot – half-man, half-spirit beings - who could come and go at will, leaving no trace: Kadaicha spirit-warriors; The Fethafoot.

Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Nyarla and the Circle of Stones is the first book in The Fethafoot Chronicles by Pemulwuy Weeatunga. At the time of the big invasion by the Ghost people, Bidjigal warrior Pemulwuy of Eora Country led his clan to victory in a 12-year war against the Ghosts, enabling the people of Eora Country to stay hidden, keeping their cultural secrets safe. With the formation of the Fethafoot Clan, warriors were trained to the pinnacle in strength, fitness and weaponry as well as spirituality, magic and telepathic skills. The terrifying reputation of Kadaicha-man spread fast across the land, resulting in those who broke the laws of the Elders to have good reason for fearing the repercussions, as the Fethafoot Clan were able to see and hear through the eyes of the animals of the land, sea and sky. With the men and women in each tribe deemed equal, their respect for each other brought about a harmonious lifestyle which enabled them to survive the harshest of weather each time the Goddess cleansed her skin (the land) with floods, fires and volcanic eruptions. As an Indigenous Australian, I am all too familiar with Fethafoot (Kadaicha-man – feared Judge, Juror and Executioner of our people), which is why I selected this book for review. Narrated in Dreamtime fashion, Nyarla and the Circle of Stones is a gripping read for those who enjoy hearing true tales of Indigenous life. Pemulwuy Weeatunga takes the reader through the beginnings, the culture, the history, the invasion and the spirituality of Indigenous Australians, along with the vital relationship which Indigenous Australians have with the land and the ancestors. It is so refreshing and uplifting to read a book which does not start with “Australia was discovered by Captain James Cook,” which is the typical modern day history of our land as written by the Ghosts. I found Nyarla and the Circle of Stones to be educational, informative and in depth. I recommend it to readers of all ages worldwide who prefer to read true history ahead of fabricated history, and I hope to see this fascinating book stocked by libraries worldwide some day.
