‘Dana Djirrungana Dunguludja Yenbena-l’ means ‘Proud, Strong, Aboriginal People’ in Yorta Yorta language. Murals in Shepparton’s CBD celebrate and recognise local Aboriginal history and culture. Well-known artist Matt Adnate’s works depict the late William Cooper and the late Pastor Sir Douglas Nicholls KCVO OBE, MBE, with a second mural featuring Aunty Margaret Tucker (MBE) and Nanny Nora Charles. Cam Scales’ mural recognises all local Aboriginal people who represented Australia in war, and pictures Private Daniel Cooper, a Yorta Yorta man who was killed in action during World War 1.
Further murals to come in the near future.
