Introducing Kuku Nyungkal country

Bana Yarralji Bubu is the trade name Marilyn Wallace, Peter Wallace and some of their more extended family have chosen for their cultural enterprise. 

Bana Yarralji Bubu translates, within the critically endangered Kuku Nyungkal language to mean "cool, freshwater country" .. an appropriate trade name for a venture that is so focused on opening up a better future for the rich World Heritage listed, wet tropical forests, springs  waterfalls, waterholes, and waters that is the home of Kuku Nyungkal country.

A good introduction to:

*  the cultural entreprenuers (Marilyn & Peter Wallace);
*  to the country into which they wish to restore Kuku Nyungkal people and Kuku Nyungkal lore;
*  to the Kuku Nyungkal language that they wish to hear spoken again in thise area, and
*  to the place on country from which they are making their visions and dreams come true

..  is all available in the form of a short 6 minute video in which Marilyn features, entitled "Walking on Country with Spirits"
