Mparntwe – Alice Springs sacred sites, urban impacts – ABC Off Track podcast. Ozstudies Pop-Up ed

The audio download on this ABC Off Track program regarding Yeperenye (Caterpillar) Dreaming in Mparntwe – Alice Springs is worth a listen. It is 28 minutes long, so you need to make time to listen.

The local Dreaming landscape was very well known since the work of anthropologists Spencer and Gillen circa 1900, but treated as insignificant by Australian authorities until the 1980s.

Program raises the issues of sacred sites which have been negatively impacted on by the development of the town –  and more.
