Anangu

Indigenous Peoples

Australia – The Anangu dwell primarily in the Central Western desert, to the south of the Arrernte and Walpiri.

According to the spiritual beliefs of the Anangu People, the traditional owners of Uluru, there are many important sites around Uluru that are sacred or secret significance. Because of this, the Anangu have asked visitors to show respect and not climb Uluru. Visitors are permitted to walk around the monolith, and that’s fine with us.

According to Anangu spiritual belief, there are many important sites around Uluru that are sacred and/or secret and of deep spiritual significance. Because of this, the Anangu like visitors to show respect whilst visiting Uluru. They request that people do not climb Uluru, however you may walk around it.

“If you go around the rock you’ll learn twice as much about the people who use the rock shelter and the rock itself,” says Nugal-warra story-keeper Willie Gordon, who won the juried 2009 Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award and recommends visiting the site with local Aboriginal guides.
