The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre

The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre

The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre is located at Warriparinga Way (Off Sturt Road), Bedford Park.

Over eons of time, the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains have gathered at Warriparinga. The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre was built here to ensure that Kaurna culture, and the Dreaming Story of the Land, is passed on from generation to generation.

"Yaintya trukkungga ngadlu, Kaurna meyunna, ngadluko perko yertaunangko warrabandi. Ngadlu kumangka towillilla manko mankorendi Munaintya purruttiappitti purtititya.

"In this centre we, Kaurna people, tell our stories from the land. We assemble together in the spirit in order to celebrate renewal of the Dreaming."

"Ngadlu Kaurna meyunna, kumarta yaitya meyunna, pinde meyunna kuma, banba-banbalyarnendi yerra tampirendi. Ngadlu yaitya meyunna, pinde meyunna banba-banbalyarnendi yerra tampirendi, nguya nguya wondatitya. Nepungga ngadlu marra yunggondi. Tindogadlangga ngadlu paltitya taikurringga bilyorningga budnandi.

"We Kaurna people and other Indigenous peoples meet together here and recognise each other. We Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people meet together in order to lay aside the wrongs of the past, and recognise each other. We give our hand in friendship. We come together in peace for the palti (dance/ceremony), under the sun."
