Uluru’s junior rangers at work

Junior rangers illustrating the Lungkata story

Uluru’s two local primary schools have been working together on an intercultural program focusing on Indigenous stories and culture.

The students are producing their own multi-media version of the traditional Lungka__t__a (blue tongue lizard) story.

They’re producing artwork using both traditional and modern methods as well as recording an audio track to accompany the presentation.

It has been a great opportunity for Mutitjulu and Yulara students to share culture and develop new friendships.

The Nyangatjatjara College rangers recently had the opportunity to make some i__rmangka-irmangka ointment. This potent bush medicine is made from the desert fuchsia leaves (Eremophila alternifolia) and is used as a rubbing medicine for aching joints and also as a chest rub for coughs and colds.

A grand total of 38 school groups have visited the park this month – that’s a total of 1,832 students and teachers learning all about the natural and cultural values of Uluru.
