Welcome to Thunderstone (Murungul Gurubung) Aboriginal Cultural and Land Management Services’ (TACLMS) website.
Murungul meaning “thunder” and Gurubung meaning “stone” in Ngunawal language.
Thunderstone (Murungul Gurubung) has been established to accurately reflect the past, present (and future) culture of the Ngunawal people. As with many other Aboriginal cultures, the Ngunawal people have passed down traditional knowledge from generation to generation through word of mouth and Dreamtime stories. Through this website, the Ngunawal people hope to educate the wider community about the rich history and cultural practices of the Ngunawal people, as well as impart the importance of preserving and protecting this culture from being lost or destroyed. We all can play a part in ensuring that Ngunawal culture exists for future generations.
I would like to be able to do some things now that in the long term will be of benefit to the younger generation of Aboriginal people that hopefully will follow in my footsteps and carry on the culture that I hold so dear. I can only hope that my small contribution can make it just a little easier for them to achieve their goals
