Noongar Boodja Place Names Documentary from Community Arts Network WA on Vimeo.

Noongar Boodja, is a documentary made by young Aboriginal people from Albany.

A stunning cinematic story that explores with Elders, significant places, their Noongar names and culture in Albany and surrounding areas.

This film was developed as part of CAN’s Place Names program, which looks to engage Noongar communities in exploring the meaning of language and culture through place.

CAN acknowledges the Noongar people of the Bibbulmun nation as the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work and live. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and honour all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first people of this nation. CAN is proud to work with people from all cultures, but we do so on the understanding of First Nations, first.

Always was. Always will be Aboriginal land.
