Larrakia calendar launched online with CSIRO

LARRAKIA traditional owners and the CSIRO have produced an interactive resource using Aboriginal seasonal knowledge of the Darwin region. The online Gulumoerrgin (Larrakia) calendar shows seven seasons, in an annual cycle of climatic and ecological understanding: Balnba (rainy season), Dalay (monsoon season), Mayilema (speargrass, magpie goose egg and knock ‘em down season); Damibila (Barramundi and bush fruit time), Dinidjanggama (heavy dew time), Gurrulwa (big wind time), and Dalirrgang (build-up).The calendar can be viewed at www.larrakia.csiro.au
