Kalyuku Ninti trips for 2018
Last year’s big Kalyuku Ninti (return to country) trip was cancelled due to the flooding of the lake chain between Parnngurr and Punmu. The team hope to run this trip this year in July/August with the Parnngurr and Punmu rangers.
The trip will leave Parnngurr, follow the Canning Stock Route north to Raarki and Tiwa, head west to the lakes and Mukurtu and then follow the chain back around to Punmu. The trip will pass through Kartujarra, Manyjilyjarra and Warnman country.
Many of the sites that will be visited were relocated during the 2016 and 2017 aerial mapping trips and the Punmu rangers have already made a track from Punmu in anticipation of the trip.
KJ and Central Desert Native Title Services are hoping to run a combined family-ranger trip to the southern area of the Martu Determination this year. The trip will be supported by the Jigalong rangers but will involve family members from Parnngurr as well.
