Kaurna Heritage

The aim of the Kaurna Community and Heritage Association Inc (KACHA) is to preserve and encourage Kaurna Cultural/Heritage practices and to educate and inform the general community of Kaurna traditions, customs, issues of health, housing heritage protection and conservation.

The Kaurna Heritage region covers the areas from Crystal Brook to Cape Jervis and inland to the Mt Lofty Ranges.

KACHA hold bi-monthly meetings in which they produce a quarterly newsletter to be distributed to members and to the Broader Community that addresses the issues of heritage (preservation and protection of sites in the Adelaide Plains), community education and development, and cultural tourism.

KACHA is currently working in conjunction with the Marion Council to develop a Kaurna Living Cultural Centre at Laffers Triangle.

As an overarching prerequisite of KACHA, the voting members need to be of Kaurna descent.

Three Kaurna Heritage Groups, KACHA, Kaurna Elders, Kaurna Meyunna are responsible for Kaurna nations and monitor a variety of community aspects including: who walks over Kaurna country with anthropologists; developing Native Title Management Committees; Development Acts; and, future Acts over Kaurna Native Title claims.

Tour guides can be organised through KACHA for the Tjirbruki Trail and Warraparinga Wetlands.
