Mirrdinjar - Uncle Bunna's message

Uncle Bunna Lawrie, a Mirning elder and Whale Dreamer from the Nullarbor coast teaches us about ‘Mirrdinjar’ through words and song. “Mirrdinjar is about honouring respect for the ocean and Earth and thanking it for all it provides.” As BP develop their plans to drill for oil off the Nullarbor coast, Uncle Bunna Lawrie reminds us that the Earth, land and sea, are integrated and need to be looked after for all to survive.

This was filmed on land traditionally owned by the Bunurong / Boon Wurrung peoples, proud members of the Kulin nation. Filmed by Stacey Chilcott for Green Collar Productions 2016.
