Mangara & Special Projects

The Mangara Yawuru Storylines is a community-based, multi-media digital archive which contains photographs, documents, oral histories, films, books, media and other cultural materials.   The Yawuru community can access the Mangara archive and contribute their own information. It will also be a valuable resource for researchers, students and others who want to know more about Yawuru and the Broome area.

Mangara links to many internal NBY projects, and provides a strong foundation for developing a future Yawuru cultural centre, housing significant artefacts and interpretive projects.

If you are a Yawuru community member who would like to access the Mangara archive, please contact the cultural team on

‘Bugarrigarra Nyurdany’ is an exhibition curated through the Mangara project. The Bugarrigarra is the spiritual force that shapes our cultural values, practices and the seasonal patterns that we continue to follow today. ‘Bugarrigarra Nyurdany’ uses images, artefacts and videos to share our story of culture and country in the face of the tremendous upheavals throughout the colonial era.
