People who care about Australia’s waterways and catchments joined a traditional narjong (water) healing ceremony held by senior lore men and led by Uncle Max Dulumunmun Harrison in February 2019.

The ceremony was held near the birthplace of the Murrumbidgee River, a place that should be protected within Kosciuszko National Park, but is being desecrated by hard-hooved feral animals and empty promises of protection and preservation.

From mountain springs through communities and to river mouths the Murray-Darling Basin needs protection from introduced feral animals, greed, corruption, mismanagement and poor farming practices.

Major ‘Moogy’ Sumner from South Australia joined the gathering, as did a Ngarrindjeri elder from the Coorong at the mouth of the Murray who led the dance group.
