Building NIMBI

In 1973, Harry Wilson with his wife Regina Wilson and his father Brandy Mingun and wife Lulu started Peppimentarti by leaving the Daly River mission with about 300 people. The move was so they could preserve our culture and to look after the land. Without land and culture we would be nobody, people without identity.

The Peppimenarti archive is named Nimbi (old cultural ways). Our ancestor’s used Nimbi to practice our culture, and pass on many stories, art, tools, weapons and hunting practices to their children. This has been the way of traditional cultural knowledge for thousands of years, and is still instilled in us to this very day.

We are responsible for our Community and the day to day caring for country. Our community began as a way to pracatice Nimbi. An archive is important so that old cultural ways can never be forgotten. It is for us and our children and their children the generations to come, but also other communities. We want to share Nimbi with the outside world.

— Regina Wilson, Malcolm Wilson, Karl Lukarnovic & Nanuk Wilson
