Journal by ngairedith

the CITY of ONKAPARINGA is located on the southern fringe of Adelaide, South Australia.
It is named after the Onkaparinga River, whose name comes from Ngangkiparinga, a Kaurna word meaning "The Women's River"

ABORIGINAL HERITAGE
Kaurna Yerta (Kaurna country)

Bukkibukkiunangko Kaurna meyunna yaintya pangkarilla tikketti
(Since ancient times Kaurna people have occupied this country)

The Kaurna Aboriginal people were traditional owners of the land called Ngangkiparringa (city of Onkaparinga) for at least 40,000 years before the arrival of Europeans. For a map outlining their perception of the land, their relationship to it and some of the names they used, click here.

Linked to the land by spiritual and cultural bonds, their knowledge has been handed from generation to generation in stories and memories. The Dreaming contains many of these tales and describes the creation of the world by god-like, heroic beings. The Kaurna see themselves as steward of the environmenta world alive with social and spiritual meaning.

Before Europeans arrived, they moved through their land as the seasons and their tradition allowed. They traded in karko (ochre) and met together at significant places. Clothed in cured hidesoften prepared at a site near Rekarung (the Aldinga Scrub)they lived in wodli which were simple summer housings of branch and leaf and more substantial winter structures moulded of grass and earth. Their diet was rich and diverse, built from the flora and fauna surrounding them.

Revering their ancestors and having virtually no contact with the world beyond their own, the Kaurna people were forced to meet head-on the culture of the first Europeans who arrived on their land in the early 1800s.

* CHERRY GARDENS is a semi-rural suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. The CHERRY GARDENS is located in the rural area of the City of Onkaparinga.
The cemetery is small in size and is the resting place of many of the areas early pioneer families.

Prior to 1881, all burials in the Cherry Gardens area were at the Cherry Gardens Wesleyan Chapel grounds on Hicks Hill Road where many of the first residents were interred. In January 1882, the trustees of the Church declared that the churchyard, on account of limited grounds at their disposal and as a public cemetery had opened, had passed a resolution closing their cemetery.

By September 1881, the District Council of Clarendon had surveyed and dedicated 9 hectares of land to a cemetery. The first burial, of Sarah MacKERETH of Scott Creek, took place on 3 March 1882. The first curator was Mr Charles THREADGOLD, appointed on 21 March 1881.
