The Ngala Wele Karla Launch was held in Moora on the 18th March and it was great to see the enthusiasm this project has generated. We express our sincere thanks to all those that have helped to develop and support this project and we welcome new interest.
Yued Project Officer Steph Mippy said “The momentum gathering from this project has been profound. To see the pride in our people knowing they have the capacity to start their own business, which seemed something only the well-educated or wealthy were able to do, is so exciting”.Photo: L-R Rob Miles (Moorditj Yaakiny Project Officer), Michael Edwards, Darrylene Tressider, Roberta Mippy, Cheryl, Stephanie Mippy (Ngala Wele Karla Project Officer), Renee Mippy, Crystal Mippy, Shaun Bennett, Bevan Chipper.

Moora turtle is a fresh water animal in Moora and surrounds, it is very elusive and our elders used to hunt for them and eat the meat. It is still sourced today for food and the medicinal qualities it contains. The artist Shaun Bennett is a 40 year old Yued man, originally born in Victoria. In his youth Shaun was sent to Austria to display his art works, first time ever on a plane and ever leaving Australia. Shaun has recently returned to live in Moora after spending many years in other places, more recently Geraldton.
