Save the Mirning Sea Country
Urgent funds are Needed to Preserve Sacred Aboriginal Land
For over 65,000 years the coastal Mirning People have acted as caretakers for the sacred land along the sea that forms a rainbow arch from near Point Culver in Western Australia to near Streaky Bay in South Australia, and submerged country now beneath the waves. Their home includes the Nullarbor Plain, ancient Mallee woodlands and the seas of the Great Australian Bight.
Today, this area is in danger of being forever lost if The Mirning People do not prevail in a legal court case to obtain the official Native Title for their eastern sea. That designation would provide the recognition by Australian law that Indigenous Australians have rights and interests to their sea that derive from their traditional laws and customs, and enable them to protect it for generations to come
