Gujiragun - 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.

Underneath the world’s oldest picture garden in Broome, Western Australia, sits something far more ancient – a jila or waterhole. Yawuru man Jimmy Edgar remembers the dream time stories of this area and how it has remained an important meeting place for people from many cultures over thousands of years.
