November 21, 2008, Newsletter Issue #282: Kakadu:Imprints of history

Tip of the Week

Located within 260 kilometres east of Darwin in the Northern Territory, Kakadu has been home for more than 50,000 years of Aboriginal people who today speak one of three major languages: Gundjeihmi/Mayali, Kunwinjku or Jawoyn.
The name Kakadu itself comes from “Gagudju” which was the main Aboriginal language at the start of the 20th century.
Half the area of the national park is owned by the Australian national government, the other half by the Aboriginal people who have left their imprint and their history on the rock walls of their home.
