Looking after Red Lily Njanjma Rangers

Our Culture

Added by First Languages Australia

Description In our local language of Kunwinjku, we say "karribolknahnan kunred". It means caring for country.

Looking after our country near Gunbalanya, in Western Arnhem Land, is a big part of our job as rangers.

Here is a little story about some of what we do. In particular, it's about the spot called Red Lily, right on the northwestern edge of the Arnhem Land escarpment. We'll teach you some more Kunwinjku words along the way.

This video was made as part of an ABC Open Top End workshop for the ABC Open project Mother Tongue.

A combined group of artists from the Injalak Arts Centre and Njanjma Rangers got together to tell stories and practice with media.

Produced by Manbiyarra Grant Nayinggul.

This video was originally contributed to the ABC Open Mother Tongue project, which invited Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to share a story about their mother tongue.
