Yurtu Ardla - Donny McKenzie

Our Culture

Added by Dave Laslett

Description In 2018, Ku Arts coordinated two carving camps on both Nukunu and Adnyamathanha country. The camps included language workshops supported by the Mobile Language Team, and the study of objects made by direct ancestors of the Adnyamathanha and Nukunu participants in partnership with South Australian Museum.

Through making tools and studying language, Adnyamathanha and Nukunu men were able to deepen their understanding of the way their ancestors made life and interacted with the environment. Through sharing skills and knowledge, the men of the neighbouring language groups have not only produced important artistic works but have deepened friendships that will help to keep Adnyamathanha and Nukunu carving practice strong.
