Adelaide Metro tram artwork for National Reconciliation Week
29 May 2015
An Adelaide Metro tram has been decorated with Aboriginal art to mark National Reconciliation Week.
Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation Minister Kyam Maher said the artwork could be seen on the Kardi Munaintya tram for the next 12 weeks.
“The Kardi Munaintya – or Emu Dreaming – tram is a living work of art, symbolising the importance of Aboriginal art and culture in a contemporary setting,” he said.
“The design recognises and celebrates the diversity of Aboriginal cultures in South Australia by acknowledging many different Aboriginal Nations across the state.
“The design celebrates the living culture of the Kaurna people. Kardi footprints are shown meandering across the Kaurna/Adelaide landscape. The kardi (emu) is a significant totem animal for the Kaurna people.”
The tram artwork was instigated by the South Australian NAIDOC Committee, designed by South Australian Aboriginal landscape architect and visual artist Paul Herzich, and facilitated by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.
National Reconciliation Week started ON May 27 and continues until Wednesday June 3.
Minister Maher said those dates hold special significance on the Australian calendar.
“May 27 marks the anniversary of the 1967 referendum, which changed Australia’s Constitution to give the Federal Government powers to make laws for Aboriginal people,” he said.
“June 3 marks the day in 1992 when the High Court handed down its landmark Mabo decision that paved the way for Native Title land rights for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.”
National Reconciliation Week is held around Australia every year to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the valuable contributions they continue to make to this country.
