The Museum has researched and produced a map of Minjerribah with Jandai place names.
The map has been installed in the reception area of the Museum, welcoming visitors to Quandamooka Country.
The purpose of making the map was to enhance understanding of the Quandamooka people and their lands and waters. Scientific evidence indicates that Quandamooka country has at least 20,000 years of Aboriginal history and less than 200 years of non-Aboriginal history. Yet, colonisation replaced most of the names that Aboriginal people used for places.
We hope that this map awakens an awareness and a desire among especially non-Aboriginal people to learn more and value Jandai language and the ancient place names and history.
A3 versions of the map are for sale in the Museum shop for $4, or you can download a file and print your own copy.
