We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land, seas and rivers and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging, here on where we work and live.
Water was not only critical to desert people’s physical survival, it was also central to their ceremonial practices and spiritual beliefs. The location of water sources defines Aboriginal people’s Country. In some areas of the Great Sandy Desert, springs are considered ‘living’ waters and are known as Jila.
Some are inhabited by powerful ancestral beings. Many of these Jila are linked by Dreaming tracks that connect the Countries of Martu, Yulparija, Juwaliny, Mangala, Wangkajunga and Walmajarri people. The ancestral stories of these sites are recorded in the songs and dances that cross the desert, uniting peoples through shared ceremonies and lore.
The water that pulses through the land is considered living by the Aboriginal People.
Powerful ancestral beings travel the dreaming tracks which link permanent water sources called Jila.
Jila is how we have connected with each other & the land for thousands of years.
Share the Spirit.
