Dr Jo Anne Rey, a former DSMG Director, and very active Dharug community member, has recently published a new website in collaboration with Dharug community and other allies. Jo's research project is titled ‘Weaving Country across the City: Activating Dharug Ngurra’ is funded through the 2020 Macquarie University Fellowship for Indigenous Research (MUFIR).
The site was developed to inform people about Dharug activism and agency, continuing caring for Country/Ngurra even when Country is a city. It seeks to inform the public of the revitalisation of cultural practices, perspectives, and ways of knowing, being and doing through the storying of past-present-futures.
Following the research project, the site includes extensive information resources on the three project sites:
Shaw’s Creek Aboriginal Place, located at the foot of the Blue Mountains in far western Sydney
Blacktown Native Institution site, located at Oakhurst, in central western Sydney
Brown’s Waterhole, Lane Cove National Park, northern Sydney
