This exhibition describes the culture of the Ngarrindjeri people of the Lower Murray River and Coorong areas of South Australia.
Their environment was rich with animals, plants and aquatic resources and the Ngarrindjeri groups were consequently less nomadic than Aborigines of the inland. A wide range of material culture items – wooden artefacts and basketry in particular – reflected this more sedentary lifestyle.
Users of the "Ngurunderi : An Aboriginal Dreaming" website should be aware that in some Aboriginal communities, seeing the names and photographs of dead people may cause sadness and distress, particularly to relatives of those people.
Before using the site in such communities, readers should establish what the wishes of senior community members and take their advice on procedures and safeguards to be adopted.
