We are the Adnyamathanha (ad-nya-mut-na) people. “Adnya” means “rock” and “matha” means “group” or “group of people”. Our people used to roam throughout this country from the Northern Flinders South to Port Augusta and as far east as Broken Hill. When pastoral leases were established our people were forced to camp together and travel less. Five tribes then came together the Kuyani, Wailpi, Yadliaura, Pilatapa and Pangkala.
Twenty-five years ago Nepabunna was successful in starting the first IPA at Nantawarrina. The station property was degraded and we were able to take over management. With the help of the IPA programme, and using our knowledge, we were able to restore the land. Ever since, things have been improving there, for the flora and fauna. We are proud of that.
