New YouTube films highlight cultural importance of two south coast wetlands
Green Skills has recently produced two short YouTube films documenting Noongar Elders, Carol Pettersen and Eugene Eades, visiting culturally significant wetlands east of Albany.The films were made by Frank Rijavec with assistance from Margaret Robertson. The films are based on a day’s outing led by Aunty Carol and Uncle Eugene, attended by Noongar family members and interested Wadjellas (non-Noongars) to Moolyup Swamp ( Lake Pleasant View) near Manypeaks and Warriup Swamp (Mullocullup Nature Reserve) near Green Range.
The two films share knowledge about what makes these stunning wetlands special for Noongar people and culture.
