CCCSC Social Meetings

Next Meeting. Wed 27 June 2018 from 7:30pm

From Pintubi St to Jagungal (Aboriginal placenames in the snowfields and thereabouts)
Guest Speaker: John Giacon
There are a number of Aboriginal placenames in the snowfields, but even more on the roads to the snow. We will look at:
– the shape of Aboriginal words, including placenames
– a list of names from this area that are, or very likely are, of Aboriginal origin
– the few names in the list whose meaning is known
– some placenames from other areas.
John Giacon researches and teaches Gamilaraay, a language from around Tamworth/Moree/Gunnedah.
