AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Naji is a story from the Bugarregarre time, the Dreamtime. The spirit beings came out of the ocean and woke up the silent, barren land, as they moved from Dabberdabbergun in the West, to the land of the rising sun, creating life and importantly, water, as they travel. This creation story comes to life through the use of re-enactments as Richard Hunter, an elder of the Goolarabooloo people, recounts the steps of his First People. Or during the Buguragarri (the Dreaming).'

Notes

  • 'Songline custodian Mark Moora was born at Kiyarr in the Great Sandy Desert of Western Australia. He grew up in Old Balgo (Wirrimanu Community) where he attended the Pallottine Mission School for five years. Mark wanted to record the Tjawa Tjawa songline in order to reconnect his people to their country and hold this story strong for future generations.'
