Kapululangu Aboriginal Women's Association (KAWA)

 

Description

The Kapululangu Aboriginal Women's Association (KAWA) is a women's law and culture centre in Balgo, Western Australia. It was established by the female Elders of Balgo, to assist them in fulfilling their obligations as the Senior Law Women (ceremonial bosses), healers, providers, and protectors for their families and peoples.

Kapululangu provides a dynamic and inspirational learning environment for men and women of all ages to engage in cultural activities and events. Through passing on their cultural knowledge, the Elders aim to address some of the social challenges faced by Balgo community members. It is the philosophy of the Elders that such social challenges can only be healed through connectedness with self, kin, land, and Tjukurrpa (universal lifeforce/dreaming).
