Datim Datim in Dja Dja Wurrung language means ‘boomerang’.
As the boomerang returns back to the hands of its maker, so too has this collection of Dja Dja Wurrung objects returned to the Djaara People.
After more than 150 years, 20 significant artefacts made by Dja Dja Wurrung ancestors are returning to Country in a repatriation project led by Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation. These artefacts including spears, boomerangs, throwing sticks and baskets will be displayed in the Gallery to celebrate this important moment in Dja Dja Wurrung history.
A member of the Dja Dja Wurrung community will share the history and story of these artefacts and the significance of this project to the local community. Free.
