ngadyu narri coedie
My name is coedie
Ngaya Waddana Ngadyu yamba nani mundu
I am speaking from my homelands
Yinda Daga-gu Yina Banna
You need to come here
Gundarrana Ngaligu Binda
We’re fighting to live.
I’m asking every man and woman to come to my homelands to join me and my family at Waddananggu – ‘The Talking’. Waddananggu is an evolving and multifaceted ceremony.
We have set up a stone Bora ring and ceremonial ground opposite Adani’s mine and are asserting our human rights as Wangan and Jagalingou people to practice culture.
ngali yinda banna, yumbaba-gi.
We need you, to be heard.
