On Demand

View Sydney Harbour through an Aboriginal lens.


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Step into the story as you consider the origins of Sydney Harbour from the perspective of Coastal Sydney’s Traditional Owners.

The Dreamtime Story of Buriburi, the Humback Whale
Ray was originally told the story of Buriburi by the senior women in his community and, in this brand-new video, he retells it with the aid of the Gamay Dancers of the Gadigal and Bidjigal nation. Set against the backdrop of Biloela Lawn, Cockatoo Island / Wareamah, the Gamay Dancers complement Ray’s words with a traditional performance that captures the essence of the Buriburi story.

Ray Ingrey, Chairperson of the Gujaga Foundation and a Dharawal community representative, shared a local Dreamtime Story of Buriburi, the humpback whale, at the launch of the Bondi to Manly Walk (B2M).
The organisers of the B2M embraced the Dreaming figure as their symbol and it is visible on signage throughout the 80 km coastal walk.

A Collaboration: The Harbour Trust & Gujaga Foundation proudly presents – The Dreamtime Story of Buriburi, the Humback Whale.
