Overview:

The Marree-Arabunna people have a spiritual life that permeates all. On this occasion, they have agreed to take LAMP (Lawyers for Arabunna Marree People) travellers and their friends through their county and explain the spiritual meaning of their country and the spirituality, history and culture of their People, a history continuous in Australia since antiquity. This is truly a unique opportunity.

One of the most impressive aspects of the Arabunna is their generosity of spirit and ready exchanges of wisdom, laughter and music. We will learn about traditional ways, spiritual elements as well as local history and the impact of mining on deeply important places and spiritual practices.

We travel the Oodnadatta Track, exploring the ancient natural wonders of the Lake Eyre Basin, sample bush tucker and discover bush medicine and other desert resources. We may be taken to sacred sites, ancient bushwalks, shown traditional practices and given stories from the Dreaming. At Finniss Springs Mission participants will have an opportunity to share the personal stories of people who grew up on the mission. Around the campfire we experience the power of oral tradition.

We find that every tour turns into a profound experience for each participant. Many describe this as spiritual. Law is part of culture. It services humanity and connects with human philosophical, moral, ethical and religious life. Connection with Arabunna spirituality for some is like connecting with Australia’s own Adam and Eve story. The Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities now provides rights for Aboriginal people to maintain their religion, language and distinctive essential relationship with the land, waters and other resources to which they have a connection under traditional laws and customs. This trip provides a never-to-be-repeated opportunity to understand, and experience, what those rights protect.
