Inyarrimanha Ilgari Bundara -- sharing the sky and stars
No celebration is complete without cake, and the event on-Country at the Murchison Settlement to commemorate the signing of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was no exception! During the event, the Wajarri Yamaji announced the gift of a traditional name for the expanded observatory site. The Wajarri name, which means sharing the sky and stars, is part of a new dual, official name for the site: Inyarrimanha Ilgari Bundara, the CSIRO Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory. The traditional name was suggested by Wajarri woman Shakira Whitehurst for a competition run by the Wajarri Yamaji Aboriginal Corporation (WYAC) and selected by members of the Wajarri Minangu Land Committee, the Traditional Owners of the observatory area on Wajarri Country.
