We are excited to again be co-hosting Nharangga Cultural Day at Minlagawi with the support of Yorke Peninsula Council - Sunday 7th May from 11am until 3pm, it'll be bigger and better this year and we can't wait!

Join the guided walk with Nharangga Aboriginal Cultural Tours to learn about the wells, scar trees, story telling and bush tucker (registration required).

Learn about tools, artefacts and string-making, and how traditional Nharangga techniques are inspiring works today and continuing culture.

Visit the Nharangga Artists Market to purchase unique art on Nharangga Banggara (Country).

Try a free tasting with offerings from Newchurch Family Farm, freshly cooked wattle seed damper from the warm fire by Auntie Daphney, and other tasty treats with traditional ingredients.

For the kids, join in with hosted activities including craft, face painting, dance and Dreaming stories.

Pack a picnic basket and rug and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea in the great outdoors of Minlagawi!

It's a free event but please book online if you're intending to come - there'll be three walking tours hosted by Nharangga Aboriginal Cultural Tours this year, you can reserve your place as an option while booking. See you there!

We are often asked about the various spellings of Nharangga, and which to use. The various spellings arose through the differences in Nharangga language sounds and the English alphabet’s inability to replicate them accurately. The unfamilar sounds to foreign ears resulted in around eight different spellings being used over the years, of which ‘Narungga’ was the most commonly used in recent times. Being an ancient oral language, a consistent contemporary spelling structure had to be built around it during recovery to enable it to be taught in today’s world. Consequently the ‘Nh’ at the beginning of Nharangga was adopted during the community language recovery workshops to best replicate the sound of the word spoken traditionally, and Narungga is the English version. Here at NAPA, after more than twenty years of dedicated language recovery, we changed the spelling of the organisation to reflect that, and always use the traditional spelling when referring to people, language, culture or Country.
