Meerningal/Djilba Event- Parrys Beach

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

At the Djilba seasons event Lester Coyne will discuss his recent visit to the Scotland Museum to learn about artefacts which originate from the Menang people. The artefacts consisted of paintings and original labels on the fish including the Menang names of each species and, in some cases, the name of the Menang fishermen who caught them. Small sewn-up holes in the fishes confirm that they were caught using Menang fishing spears.

The discussion will centre on how this cross-cultural cross disciplinary experience has enabled a better understanding of the collection. Lester will also discuss the significance of repatriating these items back to the original custodians in the future.

Katy Fanai from the little white what project will also speak at event about the scientific research and observations currently being undertaken on the whale populations visiting the South West of WA. https://www.littlewhitewhalepr...
