WELCOME TO COUNTRY

Ceremonies and protocols are a fundamental part of Australia’s First Nations cultural traditions. Arranging a “Welcome to Country” ceremony and “acknowledging the traditional custodians” of the land shows respect for Aboriginal people as Australia’s First Peoples.  A Traditional Welcome in the form of song, dance and smoking ceremony or a welcome to country by an Elder for a specific occasion can be provided by arrangement. 

CULTURAL TALKS AND TOURISM

MMEIC Elders are available, by arrangement, to address groups of professionals, for example from the fields of health and human services, seeking to understand how best to engage with our people, and/or to accompany groups on a pre-arranged tour to sites of significance.

COMMUNITY BUILDING - MINJERRIBAH MERING!

COMMUNITY BUILDING – MINJERRIBAH MERING! (alive) promotes the importance of life-long learning to our capacity to participate economically, and contribute to civic life. The emphasis is on the creation of culturally-safe learning and workplaces, and developing pathways to further training and education through on-going learning access and support.  Opportunities are provided for community members to participate in caring for country on TERRA BULLA LEUMEAH CONSERVATION RESERVE

TERRA BULLA LEUMEAH CONSERVATION RESERVE

MMEIC Elders lobbied the then Redlands Shire Council (Now Redlands City Council) for the return of a portion of Moongalba – our Traditional Camp grounds, or “sitting down place” to community.   This led to the re-zoning of the site, which was also the site of Myora (Mission) and Aboriginal Reserve as a conservation reserve to be co-managed by MMEIC.  The conservation reserve was named “Terra Bulla Leumeah” (meaning “beautiful place here I rest”) in the language of the Dharawal (Traditional Custodians of the area in NSW now known as Campbelltown City) who camped at Moongalba near the water’s edge during their journeys to the Bunya feasts.

MMEIC convenes cultural events and celebrations, on this site, and has created a wheelchair accessible Bush Tukka Garden to educate visitors about the traditional and medicinal uses of our plants.
