Bumbi, Balgan and the Budawang people - This Place

Our Culture

Added by First Languages Australia

Description 'This Place' is a partnership between the ABC and First Languages Australia inviting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create a short video about a place name, and the story behind it. Share with ICTV with support from the Community Benefit Fund.

The mountain Balgan, otherwise known as Pigeon House Mountain, is a sacred place from which many stories come from. This dreamtime story is from the Budawang people, one of the thirteen kinship groups in the Yuin area that speak the Dhurga language.
