The Ngaut Ngaut rock shelter was the first “scientifically” excavated site in Australia in 1929, but it has much deeper meanings for local Indigenous people. In conjunction with the other River Murray and Mallee Aboriginal people, the Mannum Aboriginal Community Association Inc. (MACAI) shares stewardship responsibilities with the State of South Australia for this iconic place, known as Devon Downs in the archaeological literature. Existing online information concerning Ngaut Ngaut is viewed by MACAI as incomplete or inaccurate at best, and overtly wrong and offensive at worst.To help address these concerns, Isobelle Campbell (MACAI) and Amy Roberts (Flinders University) developed the Ngaut Ngaut Interpretive Project, an IPinCH Community Initiative. This is the final community report for the Ngaut Ngaut project
