LIBERAL Senator Zed Seselja has announced a grant of $58,100 by Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, under the Indigenous Heritage Programme to the Thunderstone Cultural & Land Management Services Aboriginal Corporation to restore and maintain Ngunawal Heritage Sites.
“Projects cover activities including the conservation of burial sites, conducting heritage surveys and repair work, developing cultural heritage management plans and recording and passing on traditional knowledge,” Minister Scullion said.
“This funding will enable the Thunderstone Cultural & Land Management Services Aboriginal Corporation to restore and maintain Ngunawal Heritage Sites,” Zed said.
“This project will conserve and provide community education regarding the rich Indigenous heritage in the Ginninderra Catchment (north-west ACT/NSW cross-border region).
“Guided by an Aboriginal Reference Group and building on cultural management plans, this project will maintain, restore and renew Ngunawal Heritage Sites in the Ginninderra Catchment.
“It will also interpret and explain these significant heritage places through a series of interpretive walks and publication of associated audio-visual productions on the internet.”
