Change Media and Ngarrindjeri collaborated on a short web-documentary, as an engaging promotional tool for Ngarrindjeri and the Department of Water, the Environment and Natural Resources DEWNR, to showcase the significance of Ngarrindjeri science and cultural understanding of the Murray Mouth, the Murray River, the Lower Lakes and the Coorong.
We traveled with Ngarrindjeri, visiting locations significant for Ngarrindjeri cultural and caring for country practices , along the Murray River, the Lower Lakes, Coorong and the Murray Mouth, to highlight the spiritual connection between Ngarrindjeri and their lands and waters.
The documentary follows the narration script and storyboard developed by NRA, Change Media and DEWNR in late 2015, with a voice-over performed by Ngarrindjeri elder Ellen Trevorrow.
The project also features one of the Ngarrindjeri nurseries, where their team is growing a wide range of native plants for revegetation work and their new wild eats business.
