Majestic Musselroe Bay in North East Tasmania was the best place to be on Saturday 2nd December, to celebrate the Mannalargenna Day Festival on Tebrakunna Country.
Close to 900 people attended the event, to learn more about local aboriginal culture.
Melythina Tiakana Warrana Aboriginal Corporation (MTWAC) and Mannalargenna’s descendants celebrate his life, on the first Saturday of December every year. The event now in its 9th year, celebrates the revered clan leader Mannalargenna of the north east coastal plains nations.
A roar of applause, cheering and clapstick tapping was heard from the crowd, when Nick Cameron (Chairperson of MTWAC) and Giles Rinckes (Acting General Manager of Woolnorth Renewables) announced the signing of a 20-year land access license for the MTWAC.
The 20-year licence agreement will provide MTWAC with significant certainty regarding how the site can be accessed and used in coming decades, paving the way for MTWAC to accelerate and expand plans for utilising the land for cultural and spiritual purposes.
Woolnorth Renewables own the Musselroe Wind Farm and have enjoyed a fantastic long-term relationship with this group, together building the Tebrakunna Visitors Centre, developing land management programs and Tebrakunna Trainee Ranger programs that are run on the property.
A beautiful day spent learning, sharing, laughing together and acknowledging First Nations people.
