Additional Information

This canvas was created with tracks left behind by my family before me they showed us how to look after the land they worked and lived on as we do today , the middle is the mighty MURRAY River where I live, different colours show the water of different depths, water weed the river life live on, the foot tracks of man the tracks of different animals the meeting places of our people who came together to teach younger generations their lessons of the land and leave there tracks on time as well.A rich array of plants and animals provided reliable food along the river water ways with animal tracks for hunters to track and hunt showing the younger ones these tracks for learning how to get food .

People of the Murray River traces the ways in which the Ngarrindjeri (South Australia’s Murray River region), Yorta Yorta Nation (Echuca region) and other clans along the Murray River lived on its banks and the nearby flood plains for thousands of years right up to the present.

The Murray is one of Australia’s longest rivers. Our people have been living here for thousands of years. We call the river Millewa or Tongala. It starts high up near Mt Kosciusko and winds through the saltbush and mallee plains of New South Wales and Victoria. When it reaches South Australia the river narrows and runs through high cliffs. At last it spreads itself out into Lake Alexandrina.

The land and the river have always been very important to us. Near the river there were once many swamps and billabongs. These were flooded each spring when the melting of the winter snow in the Snowy Mountains filled the river. At this time of year the reeds grew more than two metres high. We had to burn paths through the reeds to reach the river bank. At flood time in the swampy country we lived on small islands.
