Paying Attention to Arne – Veronica Perrurle Dobson & Meg Mooney Walk and Talk about Arne (plants)


‘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 AM and scientist and writer Meg Mooney for an engaging talk in the picturesque Olive Pink Botanic Garden. Veronica and Meg will guide you to look more closely at the native plants there, asking you to hear and respect their stories and spirit.
