The Mirning people are a group of Indigenous Australians whose traditional lands lie in the coastal region of the Great Australian Bight of south-west South Australia and bordering Western Australia.
Description and culture
The Mirning people were one of the founding members of People of the Whale, a project to research the relationship between whales and indigenous people. Part of the project was making a documentary film, Eyes of the Soul, which was conceived by Kim Kindersley and Julian Lennon in 1994. By 1998, funding ran out and the film project was abandoned.
A new documentary called Whaledreamers - the Gathering, about indigenous tribes, was made in 2006.
