The Ngarrindjeri (literal meaning The people who belong to this land) are a nation of eighteen groups (lakinyeri) consisting of numerous family clans who speak similar dialects of the Ngarrindjeri language and are the traditional Aboriginal people of the lower Murray River, western Fleurieu Peninsula, and the Coorong of southern, central Australia.
Uncle Moogy – a Ngarrindjeri Elder teaches traditional Ngarrindjeri dance and martial arts to the next generation of his people, as well as sharing traditional practices available to be shared with non-Aboriginal peoples.
Uncle Moogy is known as an Elder with a strong cultural will, ”We have to make sure these things don’t get lost again. That’s what we’re doing here – dancing the healing spirit back into the land and the water and back into ourselves.”
