NAIDOC Special: Mungo Man and Mungo Lady – Always Was, Always Will Be

Located in western New South Wales, Lake Mungo is beautiful – but that’s not its only claim to fame. A place of significance for the Paakantji, Mutthi Mutthi and Ngiyaampaa people, it’s also the site of the discoveries of Mungo Man and Mungo Lady – the world’s oldest known ritual burial and cremation.

In this NAIDOC 2020 special video, Carla discusses the significance of Mungo Man and Lady – and how they stand as a stark reminder that this Always Was, Always Will Be Aboriginal land.
