Traditional Owners launch light show at Innamincka

Yandruwandha Yawarrawarrka Traditional Land Owners Aboriginal Corporation and South Australian Native Title Services are in partnership to deliver the initiative: ‘Padla Ngalungga Kinipapa’ (Cooper Creek, Our Country).

The inaugural light and sound installation will be held during the July school holidays at Innamincka, creating an immersive cultural experience that celebrates the traditional lands of the Yandruwandha Yawarrawarrka people across south-west Queensland and north-east South Australia.

From July 8 to 24, the event will showcase Traditional Owner perspectives associated with the Burke, Wills, King and Yandruwandha National Heritage Places and stories of the expedition and interactions.

“We the Yandruwandra Yarrawarraka people are very respectful of our land and waterholes and welcome all to our homelands. We hope you all enjoy the Padla Ngalungga Kinipapa experience and take away how important our Country and connection is to our people and our lives,” said Teresa Gallo, the Chairperson of Yandruwandha Yawarrawarrka Traditional Land Owners A.C.

“Yandruwandra Yarrawarraka people are embracing new technology to showcase their history and culture on a large scale. It will be an unmissable spectacle for anyone near Innamincka looking to learn more about the traditional owners of the area,” said Keith Thomas, the CEO of SA Native Title Services.

The project received funding from the Australian Government’s Heritage Grants program, which aims to improve recognition, conservation, preservation and access to the heritage values of national heritage-listed places.
