Did you know?
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander program’s web banners and the title of our online newsletter, Goree, were inspired by the bogong moth.
Goree means 'bogong moth' and historically, the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples gathered at the site where the Museum stands in Canberra for an annual bogong moth ceremony.
'Yungulu panungku milya-pinyi nyarrpa-manu kujalu-jana yapa-patu kardiyarlu makiti-kirlirli ngurra nganimpa-nyangurla.
We want everyone to know what the whitefellas with rifles did to Aboriginal people in our country.'
Theresa Ross, Warlpiri woman, 2007
