In South Australia’s Coorong region, Ngarrindjeri people have been sustainably harvesting kuti (aka pipis, clams or cockles) for many hundreds of generations.
Kuti Co is a Ngarrindjeri-owned enterprise working in partnership with Goolwa PipiCo, the largest quota holder within the Marine Stewardship Council certified Lakes and Coorong pipi fishery, to harvest kuti. It’s a profitable fishing business, and it’s providing opportunities for Ngarrindjeri to get back on country.
In this short film, hear members of the Ngarrindjeri community share their stories about the significance of kuti for past, present and future generations:
Derek Walker, Ngarrindjeri Elder and Kuti Co Director
Anthony Long, Team Leader Kuti Co Harvest Crew
Cedric Varcoe, Ngarrindjeri and Narungga Artist
Pauline Walker, Ngarrindjeri Elder Aunty and member of Deadly Nannas
