About The Wagyl Kaip and Southern Noongar Region

Stirling Ranges.

Koikyenunuruff – a Dreaming story relating to the Stirling Ranges:

“Long, long ago two enemy tribes lived on adjacent tracts of land and there was no range. The tribes went to war and many of their people perished. After the bloody battle, as the survivors grieved for their dead, a great cloud settled over the land, like a shroud. When it finally lifted there to be seen in profile be all was a tremendous old Noongar lying on his back between the two tribal grounds. Silhouetted against the sky could be traced his ample stomach, his thick lips, his tangled fringe hovering over his heavy brow.” Noongar are the knowledge holders of stories around this part of our booja.

The Wagyl Kaip and Southern Noongar claim for Native Title was made in September 2006.
