Ngaltingga Yerta: Aldinga Country

Wonggayerlo Western sea (Gulf Saint Vincent) (WA Cawthorne, State Library of New South Wales)

Join Karl Winda Telfer, senior custodian, and Gavin Malone, cultural geographer, as they speak on the Kaurna cultural landscape of the Ngaltingga (Aldinga) region. The presentation speaks to Kaurna images in the recently completed bi-cultural photo narrative in the Local History section, Aldinga Library. The Kaurna images (colonial era paintings and contemporary photographs) reflect the cultural landscape from pre-settlement to the present. They reference Mullawirraburka, senior custodian of the region at settlement; and the river, land and ocean cultural practices and places. Karl will also speak about the contemporary Mullabakka (shield) he made for the library. Questions and discussion welcome.
