“Fire is lore for country. Wisdom of the fire was carried by few people in the tribal clans. A knowledge of stars, clouds, winds and animal movement was needed for the right fire to burn and where to begin the burn. Woltatti is a star which initiates the time of this cultural practice. 

In this interactive touchscreen story, Senior Kaurna Custodian of ceremony and artist, Karl ‘Winda’ Telfer, will take you on a journey in preparation for the Kaurna season of Woltatti, the hot season between January and March.

There are images of bushfires and embers in this exhibition that some visitors may find distressing.
