Menang Maritime History Exploration Evening: Southern Ocean Perspectives

Monday 4th July 2022

Join Carol Pettersen and Sarah Drummond to delve into the past and learn about maritime encounters between Menang Noongar and Wadjela people.
The Albany shoreline has a long-standing history of serving as a liminal space between ocean and boodja (land), with ancient Menang Noongar peoples utilising this space for a variety of purposes such as hunting, fishing, collecting and storytelling.
Settler colonisers were originally sea people, exploring the globe with an eye to claim lands as their own. What was it like when these worlds collided?
Learn more about our collective past at this fascinating talk.
Tickets are $25 per person.
A hearty bowl of seafood chowder and a glass of wine is included in the evening.
