The Kuku Yalanji are the indigenous inhabitants of the land
which stretches from around Cooktown in the north to near
Chillagoe in the west and Port Douglas in the South.
We are true rainforest people who live in harmony with our
environment. We are part of it and it is part of us. Our culture
has always involved a deep respect for nature and an intimate
knowledge of its cycles.
What we know about the plants of the rainforest we learnt from
our elders - our fathers, grand fathers, mothers, uncles and
aunties. What we know belongs to them, to our culture and our
traditions. Mossman Gorge is a very special place...its water, its
rainforests and its mountains hold many stories...We invite you
to share it with us.
