Our Tucker

Added by Karungkarni Art and Culture Aboriginal Corporation

Description Kunpulu (Freshwater Sawfish) are extinct in all but three of the 80 countries it was once found. They are highly threatened in Australia, but are still found in the Victoria River (NT). This film details Gurindji knowledge about kunpulu, including the records of them in rock art around Kalkaringi. The Murnkurrumurnkurru CLC ranger group, Karungkarni Arts, CDU biologists and UQ linguists are now working together to learn more about the kunpulu.
