Commemorating the life and work of WA Aboriginal elder Ned Cheedy

Date posted: 31 July 2012

The Juluwarlu Group Aboriginal Corporation of Roebourne has produced two videos which commemorate the life and work of the late Ned Cheedy, from the Yindjibarndi nation in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Elder Ned Mayaringbungu Cheedy was awarded the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011, for his contribution to caring for Yindjibarndi law, culture, language and the future of his people.

The videos are a celebration of Mr Cheedy's life and the Yindjibarndi culture, and are available for viewing on the Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation website. The first video is called Mayaringbungu: a beautiful mind, and the second is When the ground is hard, Yindjibarndi dance.

The Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation wishes to advise that names and images of deceased people are used on their website, and are also present in these videos.
