Bungambrawatha is the Wiradjuri word for this area.
It means homeland.
For many Aboriginal people, their stories are buried in layers of white history and are overlooked. This show gives voice to our local Indigenous community to share in their own words, the stories of their families, history and community in our region, and how Albury Wodonga became home.
In a government managed initiative 50 years ago, the Aboriginal Families Resettlement Scheme was developed. Aboriginal mobs were moved off the Missions, Reserves and smaller isolated communities to be integrated into regional towns. For Albury it was the birth of theMixedMob community. For some this was a new lease on life, for others it created a deep sense of dislocation, dispossession, and loss of culture.
In 2022, the young ones of Black Border Theatre will engage with local Elders and community on the border, to gather and share their stories of Bungambrawatha.
