Join us for an afternoon of yarns from Wergaia, Wamba Wamba and Nyeri Nyeri man Mark Grist. A qualified archaeologist, Mark studied at the Australian National University majoring in archaeology and anthropology. Mark has spent many years recording and protecting Aboriginal heritage sites throughout Australia and has been at the forefront of recording biological information from Australian Aboriginal Ancestral remains, contributing significantly to the return of Ancestral remains to various Aboriginal communities throughout Australia.
Arts Mildura would like to acknowledge the Latji Latji, Nyeri Nyeri, Ngintait, and Wergaia people as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, along with their neighbours the Barkindji, Maraura, Mutti Mutti, Tatti Tatti and Wotjabaluk people.
We pay our respects to each of these communities and to their elders past and present.
