Nyungar culture website

The Yelakitj Moort Nyungar Association has created a website you can look at which provides information about aboriginal activities and culture in Western Australia.

Yelakitj Moort Nyungar Association is an Australian Indigenous Organisation, made up of members of the Nyungar people who are the traditional, recognised people of the south west of Western Australia.

The Yelakitj Moort Nyungar Association is named after William Thomas Bennell, whose Nyungar name was Yelakitj – “Man of Good Hearing”. Yelakitj was the story teller – he was the minder of the Nyungar story. His stories are recorded in oral history (available in the State Library of Western Australia), video and book.
