Tulladunna Family History and Cultural Celebration

Wee Waa Local Aboriginal Land Council (Wee Waa LALC) will celebrate a partnership with North West Local Land Services to protect an area of high cultural significance on the Tulladunna Reserve, in Wee Waa next week.

The Tulladunna Reserve Project showcases a number of cultural sites and traditional land management practices undertaken by the Kamilaroi people. Places of significance on the reserve include a Bora Ring, Scarred Trees and burial sites.

The project has conserved these sites and implemented traditional land management practices such as traditional burning and native planting. The on ground work has been undertaken in partnership with community, TAFE students, and LALC members. The project on Tulladunna has encouraged a shared understanding and appreciation of the Kamilaroi people and their traditional practices of land management.

Wee Waa Local Aboriginal Land Council CEO Robyn Keeffe, Board and Land Council members, would like to thank North West Local Land Services for the funding that has enabled us to partner with TAFE, Corrective Services (who will maintain the site), and the community, to protect our cultural land, also to share our history with the Wee Waa Youth and Community.

The protective fencing, planting of native species, combined with a cultural burn undertaken in September last year has not only improved the site, but reintroduced the local Aboriginal community to the significance of the site. The addition of interpretative signage around the Reserve enhances the ability of the community to engage with ongoing traditional learning and improved access to country for Aboriginal people into the future.

Wee Waa Local Aboriginal Land Council will hold a number of knowledge sharing days at the Tulladunna site in partnership with schools and community, to continue sharing our history and culture. There has been interest in accessing the site for family gatherings.

The project will be celebrated on Wednesday 2 May at 10:30AM on the Tulladunna Reserve. The reserve is on the Kamilaroi Highway about 2 km out of the township of Wee Waa.  Refreshments will be served from 12PM at the Wee Waa LALCE office, 63 Rose St.
