Djinda and Mulka Puppets


During Place Names Katanning CAN engaged animateur and puppeteer Karen Hethey to work with the community, Elders and more than 100 students. Together, they created two large-scale puppets of Mulka and Djinda and more than thirty coolbardie (magpie) puppets, building on their knowledge of Noongar and local history in the process. The meaning behind Katanning and surrounding place names was revealed to form part of a greater, significant Noongar story of Mulka.
