‘Akernte is the spirit. The spirit of the land is what makes the plant grow. Anything that belongs to the land has Akernte. We have Akernte. We come from the land. We die. We go back to it.’ (Veronica Perrurle Dobson)

Join senior Arrernte language teacher, botanist and ecologist, Veronica Perrurle Dobson and scientist and writer Meg Mooney for a special walk around the Botanic Gardens to look more closely at the native plants and learn how they illustrate lyapirtneme (returning; from lyapeme: ‘grow, sprout’).

Limited capacity – presale tickets only.
