Ngaityalya (thankyou) to everyone who came together in Borthwick Park on Sunday 9th July for a very special and significant Kaurna ceremony. It was moving and deeply informative to hear Jack Kanya Buckskin talk, teach and sing.
Steven Warrior joined with Jack in ceremonially cleansing the place and those present with smoke. This ancient tradition makes everyone present smell the same, joining together as one people.
Jack and Steven were generous with their time and knowledge. It was a great privilege to have two such inspirational Kaurna leaders in our midst, gently binding us together and connecting us further to the environment we love and care for in Borthwick Park.
This event was envisioned by resident Trish Hansen, supported by Foundation SA and presented by the Kensington Residents’ Association.
