Yorta Yorta people are River People.

Updated: Nov 12, 2021

Their beliefs, #traditions, #sustenance, #existence and #stories come from their ancestral river, #Dungala.

The Dungala, or #MurrayRiver, is #sacredtoYortaYortaDreaming.

In the #Aboriginal world view, the #Goulburn and #BrokenRivers that feed the Murray are of immense importance.

As #RiverPeople, other #rivers that flow into the Murray such as the #Campaspe and #Edwardsrivers are identified as important but of “lesser importance.” A senior Elder stated that “it all flows into the Murray anyway, so it’s all the same.
