River Yarns

Telling River YarnsLocal Aboriginal communities
share their stories

The Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagalk people have stories handed down through their generations about the importance and value of the Wimmera River. Wimmera CMA and Barengi Gadjin Land Council are supporting local Aboriginal communities in gathering this knowledge and sharing these stories as part of a new water project.

The project aims to help ensure local Aboriginal values and customary uses are better linked in with water planning and river management in Victoria.

Stories are being shared in lots of different ways – through gatherings and performances, through films and now through an interactive online story map.
