    Event description

    MAMMUNG is the Noongar name for the whale.

    Around 10,000 years ago Western Australia experienced rapid sea-level rise. At that time, the indigenous Noongar people adapted to the loss of almost 30% of their land as the population moved inland ahead of a 'slow moving tsunami'. MAMMUNG the film explores the living memory that Noongar people hold of this event.  The film follows Dr Noel Nannup in recalling the significance of places which are now below the sea and explaining the process of change that indigenous people endured through the narrative dreaming story of MAMMUNG the whale.

    Indigenous cultures in Australia are one of the very few who have a living memory of a period climatic change that rivals what we are seeing today. MAMMUNG the film challenges us all to ask: can we learn to understand and value this rich body of knowledge as we too adapt to a changing climate? and what awaits us if we don't?

    Please join us for a NAIDOC Week screening of MAMMUNG, followed by a Q&A with Dr Noel Nannup.  For more information about MAMMUNG the film go to
