This is an open invitation to all people who care about our waterways and catchments to attend a traditional water healing ceremony by senior lore men led by Uncle Max Dulumunmun Harrison.
When: March 3 2019.
Where: Cooinbul Hut, Kosciuszko National Park.
We will be joined by Major ‘Moogy’ Sumner from South Australia, a Ngarrindjeri elder from the Coorong at the mouth of the Murray who will be leading a dance group.
From our mountain springs through communities and to our river mouths the Murray-Darling Basin needs protection from introduced feral animals, greed, corruption, mismanagement and poor farming practices.
Please join us, young and old to share in this important cultural and heritage connection to our landscape that Australians have had for thousands of years and help rewrite the modern desecration of our water and country. What are we without our rivers?
We will meet meeting near the birthplace of the Murrumbidgee River, a place that should be protected within Kosciuszko National Park, however is being desecrated by hard-hooved feral animals and empty promises of protection and preservation.
There will be a group camping at Cooinbul Hut on the 2nd – feel free to join us on the Saturday if you would like. BYO camping gear and tucker.
This event is supported by Brungle-Tumut elders and local Aboriginal community.
