May Our Camp Fire Burn Forever
" WE OF THE PEOPLE "
We strive to empower the healing of our people’s lives and communities through cultural and social initiatives that strengthen the spiritual identity of our people. This combined, maintains a sense of belonging.
Within this belief, merged the power of the Kyana gatherings on the foreshore of the Derbarl Yerrigan during 1991-1993.
Together with education and training, we produce groundbreaking short films that explore our nation’s history of racial injustice, written materials, and the award-winning Kyana Art Gallery.
The future legacy of Dumbartung will merge into a new bastion of truth telling. Future generations will be able to access the historical knowledge of the past, including the 1905 Native Welfare Act and how this policy affected and dispossessed our people from their land, culture, and families.
The bastion will display the Kyana collections and will be a multimedia usable facility for all students and interest groups.
This facility will display our cultural history and identity with dignity and pride.
