Congratulations to Aunty Barb Amos and Aunty Irene Dingaman for working with Arid Recovery in Roxby Downs to share local Kokatha knowledge – and with the world through Channel 7 coverage! Thanks also to KAC Community Support Officer Kym Chamberlain for supporting them on the day.
As Dr Kath Tuft, CEO of Arid Recovery said:
“Now we’re mapping bush tucker and recording Kokatha uses and stories from Country, I know some local indigenous names and my connection to this place deepens all the more, past the scientific and common English names into meanings derived from people knowing and using this landscape for such a very long time. My deep gratitude to Aunties Barb and Irene and the Kokatha mob for doing this work with us and sharing their knowledge.”
