Nhawul Bultjubul Ma – To see with both eyes
For two days in November 2012 scientists and indigenous people from around Australia and the world gathered in Echuca for the Indigenous Knowledge for Climate Change Adaption Conference.
This film, Nhawul Bultjubul Ma (To See with Both Eyes), was made during that conference.
The conference was hosted by the Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation.
In ‘My learning of Country’ Berneice Joachim captures Yorta Yorta cultural knowledge in the hope that she can become part of an ongoing oral history.
Science and traditional knowledge are coming together through the efforts of the Department of Sustainability and Environment and the Yorta Yorta people to conserve the freshwater turtle species of the mid-Murray River region.
This is a series of short digital media clips featuring personal perspectives of Yorta Yorta people.
Filmed in October 2012 on Yorta Yorta country, Yorta yarns are individual stories about what it means to be a Yorta Yorta person and how YYNAC is contributing to wider community.
The four Yorta Yarns can be viewed here:
Neville Atkinson talks about his vision for the region.
