Kumangka, Mukapainga, Tampinga - Together, Remember, Recognise

Kumangka, Mukapainga, Tampinga - Together, Remember, Recognise

Kumangka,  Mukapainga,  Tampinga, is our way of acknowledging, remembering and recognising,  further thanking Aboriginal people who have contributed to our community , and those of which who are leading the way for our younger generations to follow.  These individuals have committed to bettering the lives and identities of Aboriginal people in South Australia and abroad simultaneously bridging both worlds. 

Through this project we aim to honour our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community to bridge our understanding and views of Australia Day. During the Australia Day long weekend, Elder Park (Tarntanya) will house a stunning art installation as a symbol of Aboriginal peoples belonging both past and present.  Known to the Kaurna people as ‘Tarntanya - the Place of the Big Red Kangaroo’, Elder Park will be lit up with the faces of Aboriginal Ancestors and leaders.
