Naji

Synopsis

A story from the Bugarregarre time (the Dreamtime) when the spirit beings came out of the ocean, and woke up the silent, barren land as they moved from Dabberdabbergun in the west to the land of the rising sun, creating life and importantly, water, as they travel.

This creation story comes to life through the use of re-enactments as Richard Hunter, an elder of the Goolarabooloo people, recounts the steps of his first people.
