LAKE EYRE GIVEN ITS ARABANA NAME BACK - KATI THANDA
KATI THANDA IS THE 3RD LARGEST SALT LAKE IN THE WORLD
Our tribal name is Ngurabanna, the land of the mound springs.
Mound springs are precious water holes that spread far and wide accross our Country.
The springs are central to our culture and they help sustain life in our beautiful, dessert lands.
In 2012, we decided to call our organisation Arabana, which means Sturt Desert Pea, the unique flower that blossoms in the Arabana desert after winter rains.
In 2012, we were also granted Native Title to over 69000 square kilometres of Australia, in recognition of our ancient and ongoing connection to Ngurabanna Country.
